Paraty – a historical city with charm, culture and nature

Paraty is a step back in history. It was the point of departure of the Portuguese fleet that would take the gold extracted from Minas Gerais. The city was able to preserve its historical buildings granting it the World Heritage Site title by UNESCO. And, because of the cultural and natural importance of Paraty and its neighbor Ilha Grande, the area has been listed as a Mixed Heritage Site, the one and only in Brazil. Housing big events such as the Literary Festival, the Yoga Conference and the Jazz Festival, Paraty is now a vibrant city, with great restaurants options, renowned cooking classes, but never letting go of its charm, culture and history.
