About Paraty

Paraty is a quaint historical village, founded in 1597, located on the Brazilian coast, at about equal distances from Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.


It was the port from where gold was shipped to Portugal, during Brazil gold rush. The buildings and streets of Paraty have retained their colonial atmosphere and so have its beautiful surroundings with exuberant tropical forest and islands which provide excellent opportunities for easily accessible tours. The intimate town environment is conducive to rich exchanges among workshop participants.

Surrounding Paraty you will find very attractive spots for recreation and sightseeing.
