Unlike other colonial cities, Paraty´s unique blend of 18th century architecture has earned it the status as a UNESCO Historic National Monument and Historic Patrimony. Paraty is also renowned as a natural patrimony, as 65% of the town is located inside Serra da Bocaina National Park.
We set out from the pier together with our guide and explore this wonderful colonial city on foot. Stroll through the narrow cobblestone streets, appreciate the decorated walls of the old houses, and hear stories about the colourful history. Visit important landmarks such as churches, museums, the Culture Centre and old homes, as well as a variety of artist workshops and galleries.
After the tour, the guide walks us back to the pier.
