Castle Island is a common name for the Mantimento Island (Grocery Island). The Mantimento island is located 2km from the Paraty center and have a historical importance since Portuguese navigators left the food on this island when the tide was to high to deliver the food to the city in the colonial era. I don’t have much information about the history of this caslte, it is suggested that the castle was built in 1885 as part of the defence of Paraty bay.
Today the castle and island belong to the Italian the Italian Sergio Maggiore who lives in Brazil and owner of a factory of petroleum products is the owen of this island.
The island had an estimated value of 6 million dollars in 2001.

Ola Andre ,
I don't see a low qaulity of picture , here . But an excellent one , and a marvelous view of this beautiful mansion nestled in the tropical vegetation , so close to the sea . I like how you've composed the picture , with an opening to the mountains in the BG .

Beautiful placed the castle on the island off-center in picture, to show what the look behind the curve.
The edifice itself looks as "rises" from the lavish vegetation and contrast well with the blue/grey mountains on far.

a beautiful and fascinating scenery, the landscapes, the sea, the beach and the house are amazing. I love the juxtaposition of foreground and background in terms of lighting and colours. They both look stunning and mysterious. Clarity on the Castle Island is superb, the light and the colours are wonderful and I haven't found anything wrong with the quality. It's a lovely photo, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

This setting looks magical. I like all of the green vegetation surrounding the castle. The mountains in the background and the water around this island are beautiful. That castle, along with the land, must make an excellent vacation spot! :-)

Il est beau ce château qui joue à cache cache derrière les palmiers. Et quelle belle vue de la mer il doit avoir. La lumière est belle et les détails d'une grande netteté.
