Hi guys, it is me again
Have you heard of the Trindade´s village? It is a fishermen´s beach village, still on the city of Paraty, but inside a preservation area and somewhat isolated.
Small history:"Many legends of pirates and hidden treasures are told, but the fact is that Trindade is a typical fishermen´s beach village that already had to face the power of money and weapons using its organization ability.
On the 70´s decade, a multinational company appeared claiming the right of ownership of the área to build a luxury condo.
The population, with the support of artists and intelectuals, was able to win this fight in court, maintaining the ownership of their land.
Today, Trindade lives directly from the tourism and faces the challenge of growing and structuring itself while preserving this privileged nature.
Its population today is made of people from the beach, traditional residents of the region, some foreigners that were enchanted with the local beauty and people who chose to live close to nature, in a simple and calm way, far from big cities´ stress."
I stoped there one time and it is really beautiful, and I just went to one beach. I know some people that have been there and say it is a paradise on Earth. I know some of you wants to travel and enjoy the nature, some are thinking of going to Ilha Grande. Trindade is much closer from the symposium location and probably more affordable. If someone is intereseted I´ve found this site: http://www.paraty.com.br/trindade/us/index.asp
To sketchers Trindade is a very interesting location, with beaches, waterfalls and lagoons surrendered by very odd rock formations. It also has fishermans and the houses of the village.
I am thinking in going there after the symposium, but haven´t decide yet, need to see if my husband will be free. If someone is interested in going there, let´s talk
