Paraty is a colonial city turned towards the Atlantic Ocean and towards the world and a gateway to Brazil and its history bringing the visitor to 1667,time of its foundation by Portuguese and French gold merchants. The rich and intact facades bear witness to the time when all of Brazil's gold passed through Paraty, before Rio de Janeiro stole the show. A small colonial town in Minas Gerais, an inland state that borders Rio de Janeiro, Ouro Preto, originally Vila Rica and place of the first independence attempt, is known for its Baroque architecture, rustic food and its central role in Brazil's late 17th century Gold Rush, provides a fascinating glimpse into a different side of Brazil
