Centro Histórico de Curitiba or historic downtown, also called Setor Histórico de Curitiba, is a group of historic buildings located in the neighborhood of São Francisco. Culturally noteworthy, the area used to be the primary meeting place of the community during the city's formative years. Some of the oldest structures in the city like the Igreja da Ordem, a church built in 1737, and Catedral Basílica Menor Nossa Senhora da Luz, built in late 1600s, contribute to its significance. Centro Histórico has also been home to the famous Sunday fair, Feira do Largo da Ordem since 1973.
