Vila Velha

Land of the Green Shins

Founded in the 1530s, Vila Velha features a modern skyline of tall buildings pressed against the curved coastline of the Atlantic Ocean. Most Vila Velha vacations involve at least a few of the town's well-organized and pleasant beaches, but the area offers more than just sun and sand. The biggest urban center in its region, Vila Velha boasts one of the tallest bridges in Brazil, linking the city with nearby state capital Vitoria. This part of the country is also steeped in rich immigrant history, so make sure your Vila Velha itinerary includes a visit to the area's German and Italian neighborhoods, as well as a notable 16th-century Franciscan convent, offering panoramic city views from a densely forested hill.
