Some important dates in the history of Paraty:

1945 - The core city of Paraty is decreed "Historical Monument of the State of Rio de Janeiro."

1958 - Toppling of the Joint Architectural and Landscape of the City of Paraty by IPHAN.

1966 - The whole landscape of the entire municipality of Paraty and, especially, the city's architectural collection is raised to the category of National Historic Monument.

1974 - Toppling the municipality of Paraty, which means the recognition, by the Office of the toppling, of the important natural, cultural and historical of the municipality.

The Constitution of the Federative Republic of Brazil considers five Brazilian Natural Systems as Brazilian Natural Heritage; three of them are in areas of the municipality of Paraty: the "Floresta Atlântica" (Atlantic Forest), the "Mountain of the Sea" and the "Zona Costeira" (Coastal Zone).
