Avenida dos Aliados

The “living-room” of the city.

The building proposal for this avenue was forwarded in 1914 as part of a plan to rehabilitate the city centre, connecting Praça da Liberdade to Praça da Trindade. It was approved by the City Hall in 1915.

Its construction was projected by the English architect Barry Parker, who suggested the demolition of the manor at the time occupied by the City Hall and the Laranjais Quarter that stretched out to Praça da Trindade, to create an ample avenue and a new centre in the city.

Its current designation derives from the name Avenida das Nações Aliadas (Allied Nations Avenue) with which it was baptized at the time of its inauguration, homaging the victory of the allies in World War I (1914-1918).

This avenue is surrounded by monumental buildings and crowded at the top by the City Hall building, forming a harmonious whole with luxurious façades such as the one decorating the building that lodges the Guarany since 1933.
