- A guided walk on the Gold Trail is a fascinating way to explore Paraty's past and present. This is the paved road built by African slaves to transport gold out of the Brazilian interior and on to ships bound for Portugal. It helped establish Paraty as a thriving commercial port during the coffee boom years and is now fast becoming a major tourism attraction in its own right. Without it Paraty would never have grown into what it has become - a picturesque colonial town loved by visitors from all over the world.
