PARATY COLONIAL AND CULTURAL

Travel back in time through the historical and cultural wonders that Paraty has!

Feel the atmosphere of the colonial period as you walk through the charming streets of the Historical Center, discovering its beautiful architecture, where every detail and symbol in the buildings carries a meaning and reports of important historical passages in Brazil. Irregular sidewalks, thick decorated walls, colonial houses with iron balconies and the symbols of Masonic culture represent its essence.

We start the experience by walking through the Historical Center to learn a little about the history, churches and mansions of the city. In Praça da Santa Rita, there will be a Capoeira presentation. Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian expression developed since colonial times as a form of cultural resistance through dance, music, rhythm, history and tradition.

We continue the historic walk along the sidewalks of the center, following this journey through time. Ciranda’s musical performance will take place at Praça da Matriz in the city. Ciranda of Paraty is a typical musical style from the coast of Rio de Janeiro, more specifically from the city of Paraty. The local Ciranda that enchants residents and visitors reflects the Caiçara cultural origin with expressive features of Brazilian colonization.

At the end of the presentation, we visit the Sobrado of the Brazillian Royal Familiy in Paraty. Dom João de Orleans e Bragança opens the doors of his charming château in Paraty and presents his home and its history. The prince’s house is the only one in the region that faces the sea, as it is from the imperial period, from approximately 1830, when the cycle of the gold trade had already ended.

After the visit of the mansion, we will organize a tasting of cachaças from Paraty, produced by hand in the city, conducted by a sommelier specialized in the drink, in one of the halls of the Brazilian Royal Family House. During the tasting, there will be a catering prepared by the renowned Chef Ana Bueno. The Chef focuses on creative and contemporary cuisine, but always anchored in the strong roots of the local caiçara tradition. After visiting the Royal Family House, we finish the historic walk and return to the Paraty Pier.

GILSON MARTINS ARTIST FROM RIO

Meet the artist

The carioca designer Gilson Martins was born in the Port Zone in the Center of Rio de Janeiro and had his childhood punctuated by the most representative images of the Carioca landscape. Graduated in Scenography at the School of Fine Arts of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, he presented the use of non-conventional materials in the creation of bags, proposing a new concept and look at recycling and a new aesthetic for fashion and design.

He was the first designer to use the Brazilian flag in fashion, promoting a moment of self-esteem and pride in Brazilian society. This work was supported by the Federal Government, which recognized in its work the “Brazil brand”, promoting it in the international scenario.

Gilson Martins

The ‘Brazil bags’ were exhibited in several cities that hosted the World Cup, such as Paris, Berlin, New York and Tokyo. The designer also develops a work of sustainability, using leftovers from the manufacture of the bags through upcycling, creating new products and generating income for his former seamstresses, who form small groups of artisans in the communities near his factory. His work had a strong impact during the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.

The designer created products for the International Olympic Committee, Coca-Cola, L’Oréal, for the Japanese Olympic Committee and other multinational companies. His three shops in Ipanema and Copacabana receive customers from all over the world, and are references of Brazilian design with humor and quality. French, Italian, Germans, Japanese and American people are among those who are great lovers of Gilson Martins products and are his main potential shoppers.

TIRADENTES IS BACK!

Historical and Charming City

Tiradentes – Minas Gerais

Tiradentes is open for tourism again! A historical city, with great art galleries, museums, architecture and restaurants. Because of the very low rate of new COVID-19 cases in Tiradentes, the city was allowed to receive visitors again.

Do you know Tiradentes?

Tiradentes’ baroque style is not as exquisite as Ouro Preto and São João Del Rei, but it is undoubtedly the most charming of the historical cities of Minas Gerais. Exceptionally preserved thanks to the decades of long isolation, the Baroque architectural ensemble of Tiradentes gathers jewels like the charming fountain of the São José Fountain, built in 1749 to supply the city with drinking water and which runs until today.

Also, standing out in the city is the majestic Church of San Antonio, second in amount of gold in Brasil, with its front built by the artist Antonio Francisco Lisboa, better known as Aleijadinho, and an organ brought from Portugal, in 1788. Largo das Forras, the central city square, houses the City Hall and numerous handicraft shops, restaurants and inns. It was here, in 1888, that slaves gathered to celebrate the end of slavery. At dusk, the light of the lanterns on the doors of restaurants, inns, antique shops and craft stores make the city even more charming, which has been the setting for movies, sitcoms and soap operas.
