  • We visited the Church and had a guide explaining a bit about the story, pretty pictures, beauty and silence as a visit to the past, for those who like history and very nice

  • An amazing church built by one of the pioneer families of Penha in Paraty, the Saints two Carneiro family. It has a view very nice over the Valley and is a few meters from the Cachoeira do Tobogao.

  • Erected on top of a rock, a wonderful place for those who like to exercise faith. To get to the Church, had to opt for a taxi, because it takes up a slope, not to mention the countless rungs of the ladder, but to our relief there is a funicular (kind of cable car) available for free. With a beautiful architecture and privileged view of the city Rio vista on top.

Where to stay in Paraty

If you want close proximity to raucous summer nightlife and some of the best things to see in Paraty, look no further than the historical center. There you can choose from any number of guesthouses, inns, and boutique hotels, which integrate seamlessly into the town's colonial architecture. If beach access is your primary concern, cross the canal and head a few minutes north, until you arrive at the coastal neighborhood of Jabaquara, where you'll find a range of cozy options. Farther from the center, the hillside neighborhood of Pantanal offers something a bit quieter among the trees.
