• Porto Seguro


The history of Porto Seguro begins on April 22, 1500, when Pedro Álvares Cabral discovered Brazil. During the first three decades after the discovery, Portugueses constructed Igreja da Glória - the first church built in Brazil. The economy of the small village was based on 'pau-brasil' (red brazil dyewood) extraction. In the 70's, Porto Seguro became one of Brazil's favorite tourist attractions. Besides monuments, churches and the colonial houses, the beautiful landscape seen by Cabral's squadron evokes history. Today, it is a resort town composed by Arraial d'Ajuda and Trancoso, in where the best beaches are located.
