Paraty - A historical gem


Contributor Luiz Gerbase created this excellent drone video of Paraty, a well preserved Portuguese colonial city in Southeastern Brazil.  It's located on a stretch of coastline known as Costa Verde, on the western side of the Bay of Ilha Grande.  The entire area is part of the state of Rio de Janeiro, close to the border with the neighboring state of Sao Paulo.  Paraty was one of the earliest Portuguese settlements in the Western Hemisphere.  The city center has recently been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
