Trancoso

4.5
If sandy coastal stretches, shady palm trees, and comfortable boutique hotels aren't reason enough for a trip to Trancoso, consider the town's bohemian atmosphere and distinct architecture of colorful clay houses lining its neat streets. Semi-deserted beaches top practically every Trancoso itinerary: velvety sands and natural swimming pools accessible at low tide create a picture-perfect setting, a world away from noisy crowds flocking Brazil's other top destinations. The town's main square serves as a popular gathering place for both locals and visitors, featuring a simple but historically significant 16th-century Catholic church. In the build up to your vacation in Trancoso, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Brazil travel route tool.
