Paraty, Brasil

BRAZIL | Tuesday, 31 March 2009 | Views [548]

Spent a few more days in Paraty dodging the rain and looking around the town.  Visited the old fort... Forte Defensor built in 1703 and complete with the original six cannons .

Failed to mention that some of Paraty was flooded during our stay particularly  nearer the sea end. Once a month when there is a Full Moon and the tide is high, seawater rises from its normal levels, and pours into the Historic Center District through special openings in the seawalls that separate the city from the harbor. The streets are only flooded for a short time, until the tide recedes.
