Paraty is one of Brazil’s most appealing and exquisitely preserved historical towns. Paraty’s colonial center is remarkable not only for its centuries-old architecture, but also for its lack of vehicles and traffic. The irregular cobblestone streets are closed to motor vehicles, making it a delightful place to stroll about. Elegant white buildings adorned with fanciful multi-hued borders and latticed windows blend harmoniously with the natural beauty that envelops the town.
