The village of Trancoso is one of the best preserved in the municipality of Porto Seguro, Bahia. Trancoso is really a special place full of charm and character. Founded by a Jesuit community in the 16th Century the village hasn’t lost its irresistible appeal, with today’s Quadrado Historico as the village’s lively heart. One of the main attractions is of course the fine white sandy beaches, like Praia dos Nativos, Praia dos Coqueiros, Praia do Espelho and Praia da Pedra Grande. The international airport of Porto Seguro is at about 30 minutes drive from Trancoso.
