Close to Congonhas and easy to join in the same visit, this city seems son of Congonhas and Parati.
The problem is that you need to visit all of them to understand what I mean…
At least it shows the Portuguese colonial architecture, very similar with Parati, together whit the baroque style that gets its top in Congonhas (Ouro Preto is an apart world).
One thing strikes me as odd: In Paraty, I noticed the historic center with the old Portuguese pavement, with clear signs of the years, but which benefited from the little traffic in this preserved part of the city. Here the pavement was similar, but with a lot of movement and agitation. Was it an accidental impression?
