The historical city of Paraty - Rio de Janeiro - Brazil

Hello, Friends.

Paraty is located in the south of the state of rio de janeiro.A little of the history of Brazil crosses this city. This city around 1880 was part of the outflow of gold brought from Minas Gerais and taken to Portugal.

The architecture of Paraty designed by the Masons shows the beauty of the city with its cobblestone streets and traditional festivities such as the International Literary Fair of Paraty, the feast of Saint Benedict and Our Lady of Rosario, among others.

Paraty is very nice small historical town that grow up during outflow of gold brought from Minas Gerais as you pointed out. But your pictures don't show the architecture of this town. Hope you can add more images that would show architectural beauty of this well preserved Portuguese colonial town.
