The Serra Verde Express is Brazil's most famous railway and connects the town of Curitiba with the coastal harbour of Paranagu√°, travelling through the Serra do Mar mountains. It was constructed between 1880 and 1885 by Belgian engineers and European immigrants and is a masterpiece of railway design. The tracks descend almost 1,000 metres en route, traversing a landscape of high cliffs, plunging waterfalls and dense Atlantic rainforest to reach sea level, making for a spectacular journey. There are two types of train on the route - regular and the more expensive tourist train.
