Pousadas in Trancoso

Trancoso lies an hour's drive to the south from the balsa or ferry which brings you over the River Buranhém from Porto Seguro. Originally an Indian fishing community the town was founded by the jesuits priests in 1583 and the famous church of St John the Baptist of the Indians was built on the site of the orginal 16th construction, at the top of a cliff overlooking a neverending turquoise sea. From here it is just a short walk down to the beaches and beach bars of Nativos, Trancoso and Coqueiros.

This is a place which manages to combine the best of the old and the new, the chic and the laid back. Boutique shops and restaurants now inhabit the colourful former fishermen's cottages round the quadrado or main square which is the focal point of the town and in the evenings local artisans set up stalls to sell handmade jewellery and other work. During most of the year it's pretty laid back here but avoid times like New Year and Carnival if you don't like noise. It can get very busy here with Brazilian tourists.
