NATURAL BEAUTIES, RUSTIC ARCHITECTURE AND INTIMISTIC ATMOSPHERE
Trancoso is a charming village in the municipality of Porto Seguro, on the south coast of Bahia, which combines a setting with lovely beaches, combined with the best of gastronomy and excellence in accommodation.
The history of this local paradise began at the time of colonization, with the arrival of the Portuguese at the time of the discovery of Brazil. The main milestone of that period was the construction of the emblematic Church of São João Batista, built in 1656 and which until today is the postcard of Trancoso and also the stage for sophisticated weddings.
In the early 1970s, the village was rediscovered by young travelers and hippies, but over time, it has ceased to be an isolated and unstructured place to become one of the most special, respected and sought after tourist destinations in northeastern Brazil.
The historic colorful houses of the famous Quadrado, located in the heart of Trancoso, have ceased to be exclusively the home of the local community to become the main attraction of the region with the best options of restaurants, bars and shops.
