Paraty City Tour 

Stroll about the colonial Historic Centre of Paraty with the Paraty City Tour!

Paraty City Tour

Experience all the charm of colonial Paraty with a City Tour. A guide wil lead you to all the secrets that lie in the city's Historic Centre and its surroundings.

Due to the long isolation process Paraty underwent until the mid of the 20th century, the colonial housing area known as the Historic Centre remained intact, and it became one of the most sought after destinations for cultural tourism in Brazil.

The Historic Centre of Paraty is considered an architectural heritage. In colonial times, Portuguese military engineers of the time projected streets, squares, churches and residential areas which were organised in perfect harmony. This has survived almost without changes until today. The churches are the main attractions and each was destines to a specific social class in past days.

A place where there is no car traffic, the Historic Centre is a true open air museum where you can take pictures and touch everything. Take this incredible city tour that will take you back to colonial days!
