Photographer's Note

Unlike what happened in most cities of Brazil, Paraty was a planned city. Portuguese military engineers, aware of the port city's vocation and the need for defense of the place, would be defined as the streets and where would be the churches, squares, chain, chamber, strengths and residential areas. Followed the pattern of Portuguese cities where churches served as a beacon and hub of residential attraction.
