85th place
Antonina is one of the earliest settlements in Paraná State, with the portuguese establishing in the area by the early 1600's. Tea processing and exports were the major economic activities that promoted the growth of the city during the 1800's. Later, larger ships demanded more draft, and the port activities were mostly shifted to Paranaguá, closer to the the ocean. These ruins are of an old tea warehouse built in mud stone and brick masonry. On the background, sailboats and port lifts.
