Located an hour by road from the airport at Porto Seguro, Trancoso is a small hidden paradise found on the coast of Bahia. This friendly village sits atop a small hill with beaches, cliffs, coconut trees and rivers. Ancient trees frame the landscape and give the village a quaint and relaxed feel. This historic village was founded in order to defend the region from smugglers who arrived along the coast and its famous ‘Quadrado’ Square is made up of the São João Batista church and colourful houses that create rectangle. Nowadays, the area is popular for those seeking sun, sea, tranquillity and history.
