Paranagua / Brazil
The port town of Paranaguá is not far from the city of Curitiba in the south of Brazil and serves Curitiba also as a supply port. The port is especially important for fishing, of which most of the more than 100,000 inhabitants live, but also for export and import, especially Paraguay, which has a duty-free quay here.
In this typical harbor town, of course, there is the lively harbor itself, which is always crowded and there is always something to see. Away from this, the city is somewhat sleepy, but architecturally very worth seeing, as it is built in colonial style.
The town is well-known for its adventurous railway connection to Curitiba, which goes through the mountains in a wild tangle. So, if you have enough time, you should also take this ride to Curitiba, which leads through a beautiful landscape with wonderful views.
