Welcome to Trancoso

Trancoso is smaller in scale than Arraial, with a relaxed air, an assortment of pretty guesthouses, a postcard-worthy church overlooking the ocean, and irresistible open-air bars and restaurants surrounding the pedestrian only Quadrado (the main square). The sight of the square bathed in moonlight and candlelight is quite magical.
