Historic Streets of the World


Streets of Paraty, Brazil

Located on the Costa Verde, a coastal area known for its greenery, Paraty is an old colonial town, established by the Portuguese in 1667. Its colorful historic center, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is fully pedestrianized and much of its architecture, including its cobbled streets, hasn't changed for 250 years or more. A peculiar feature of the historic center are the raised doors – this is due to the high tides that flood the city in the mornings. Many visitors come here specifically to take photographs of the flooded streets and the reflections of the colorful buildings.
