Paraty's influence


In 2010, my friend Fabio brought me to Paraty, a wonderful coastal town in the State of Rio de Janeiro, founded in the 17th century. Gold was carried from there to Portugal over two centuries until the harbor got supplanted by the city of Rio. Today, the sea still enters the streets at high tide and the old façades are really inspiring. Did they get influenced by the architecture of a specific portuguese region? What is sure is that they influenced a small building lost somewhere in the montado alentejano...
