Parati Things to Do: 103 reviews and 261 photos
The harbour is located at the Historical Center, but can be reached by car. You just have to contour the Historical Center and there is a parking lot where you can leave your car to enjoy a fantastic boat tour.
The harbour played a very important role in the economy of Paraty because most of the gold and precious stones brought from Minas Gerais were sent to Portugal from here (the rest was sent from Rio De Janeiro).
In one of my pictures, you can see a canyon used to defend the harbour from pirates´assaults, which were the main cause of the abandonment of Paraty´s Route and the economical isolation of the city.
