Paranagua

In addition to being the location of one of Brazil's most important ports, Paranaguá is a historical and ecological point of reference. Preserved there are vestiges of Portuguese colonization in the mid 17th century, and the mansions, religious processions and commemorations of church dedications still retain the traces of colonial times. As far as nature is concerned, Paranaguá is certainly favoured, with a bay which covers an area of 300 km2 and dotted with islands, beaches, shores, channels and inlets. Forming a lake region that extends from Iguape, in the State of São Paulo and passes through the cities of Cananéia (São Paulo) and Antonina (Paraná), Paranaguá Bay is an important area for mangrove conservation. Paranaguá Bay stretches over 300 km2 and also includes the Island of Mel and several beach resorts, including Pontal do Sul, Praia de Leste, Ipanema, Shangri-la, Olho d'água, Santa Terezinha, Portofino and Grajaú. 
          
The route leading to the city and the rest of the Paraná coastline is a luxuriant one. Whether travelling by car or train, the journey is exceptionally pleasant. Skirting the precipices of the Serra do Mar, the Imperial Railway has linked Curitiba with Paranaguá since 1880, its 110 km passing under and over 13 tunnels and 41 bridges and viaducts. The journey takes three hours and the train stops at old stations, hamlets and waterfalls so that the passengers can appreciate the scenery. It also stops in Morretes, a historical city dating back to 1721 and which, in addition to remarkable architecture, has as its main attraction the River Nhundiaquara, where the tide races are used as lanes for canoeing or "boiacross", a type of toboggan made with lorry
