Arguably The Most Beautiful Street in the World

Published 7 years ago

This beautiful tree-lined street in Porto Alegre, Brazil, is said to be one of the most beautiful streets in the world. One hundred tipuana trees that grow up to the 7th floor of the buildings were originally planted here in 1930’s by the German workers.

In 2005, there were plans to cut down part of the trees to make some room for a new shopping mall, luckily the resistance of local residents made the local government declare the street of Rua Gonçalo de Carvalho a “historical, cultural and environmental heritage of the city.”
