Welcome to Vitória

That said, Vitória is first and foremost an industrial port city, and its aesthetic appeal is easily lost on first-time visitors. Given the city's size, it takes time to discover its diamonds in the rough – the elegant yellow 18th-century government palace, the striking hilltop convent in Vila Velha (the first place in Espírito Santo to be colonized) and the nationally famous Garoto chocolate factory – so if you're in a hurry, your best bet may be to treat Vitória as a transport hub and move on.
