Best holidays package - Two days in Paraty - Rio de Janeiro

Beautiful colonial city, considered a National Historical Monument, Paraty preserves until today its countless natural and architectural charms.

With an historical Center of Paraty, free of cars , you will travel back in time, where walking has to be done in a leisurely pace due to the irregular rounded cobblestone pavement of its streets. The construction of its old housing and churches reflect a certain style of that time and the mysterious masonry symbols which decorate its walls, lead our imagination back to the old times of Brazil.

The prohibition of motorized vehicles in the Center certainly adds to this feeling of a "time travel".The village was founded in 1667 around the Church of "Nossa Senhora dos Remedios", its patron saint. Paraty (sometimes spelled "parati") had a significant economic importance due to its sugar cane mills (it used to have over 250 distilleries), and the name "paraty" was at a certain time synonym of a very good sugar cane rum.
