Amazing shops and restaurants... live bossa nova every single night at almost every establishment! We have truly enjoyed going for walks each night after dinner to see the music and enjoy the warm breeze

El Cuadrado is the most incredible place in Brasil. The typical shops that surround a big square, with traditional houses. And at the limit, a balcony with an unique view of the sea. El Cuadrado is completely different at night, with an unique sensation of peace.

The history, atmosphere, total vibe of quadrado is like no other place in the world. Take a wander down the strip to reach one of the oldest churches in Brazil! The 'Mirante' view is breathtaking. Many gorgeous restaurants with local and international tastes line the edges of Quadrado. Come for a day, stay for a week!

You have plently places to go for a meal, a drink or just buy crafts. I recommend you visit both during the day and night, because it's really beautiful to see it in daylight cause all the color around, and during the night with all the lights

Quiet during the day, nice to stroll around or sit and people watch, but at night the market and all the bars and restaurants spring into life

This is the most beautiful part of Trancoso. In fact if you come to Trancoso, you pretty much come for this part of the town ( mind you the rest of the town is not well developed with non paved roads and many crumbling houses) and the beaches north of Trancoso. The restaurants and shops all occupy a colorful house... More
