Paraty The Essential
Highly recommended

Paraty is a magnificent little 17C colonial town located on the Costa Verde, halfway between Rio and São Paulo. A major stopover in the shipment of gold to Europe, it flourished with the discovery of mines in Minas Gerais. It boasts a perfectly preserved old town with pedestrian cobbled streets, numerous whitewashed churches, and a superb bay dotted with islands and idyllic beaches.
