Paraty, Rio de Janeiro – Brazil

Paraty is located at the Costa Verde (Green Coast) in the state of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. The village was established in 1597 and after the discovery of gold in the mountains of the state of Minas Gerias, Paraty became an export harbor for the gold. Caminho do Ouro (The Gold Trail) its a 1200 km trail linking Paraty to Diamantina (via Oro Preto and Tiradentes).

As you see in some of the photos, water comes into the streets with the high tide. It was done on purpose, constructed as to make the water clean the streets. We visited the city on a humid and cloudy day in 2008.
