Trancoso might not be included on your mental list od amazing Brazilain beaches, but the place is definitely worth a mention. Famous among hippies in the ’70s, Trancoso is a luxurious hidden gem in the vast coast of Brazil. The city is located in the south of Bahia, 50km from Porto Seguro, destination well-known among locals and foreigners.
The town of 9k inhabitants has a “stopped in time” atmosphere and that’s the appeal. Cars and buildings are not allowed in the central area, tourists and locals walk together in its golden sand while the comerce is located at the main square referred to as the “quadrado”. The place is also where locals play football at noon, while foreigners can enjoy a cup of coffee or taste the different flavours of Bahian cuisine. The little city church dates back to the colonial period and gives a cinematography charm that reminds you that luxury is being able to swim in the sea after a 15 minutes walking. You can ask Beyoncé, she’s been around here recording his music video Blue.
As passionate scene could not fail to attract dozens of couples from various Brazilian states, who decide to “join their rags” in the chapel of the city. It is increasingly common for young pigeons give a by-pass at herculean parties for 500 guests and opt for more minimalist ceremonies – Less expense, less work, less ceremonialism and more fun. With so many details, so many guests, and so many things to think about, the idea of taking your 50 closest friends and relatives to another state ends up looking more attractive.
For some years now, Trancoso went from “hippie destination” to “the most trendy that exists in the brides universe”. With a seemingly simple ceremony, followed by a beach party, family and friends even stay in the same place, making the event a much more intimate experience. And in the end, even if the union does not succeed, the party pictures will be so beautiful that you’ll want to keep it in your living room.
Jokes and trivia aside, Trancoso enchants brides, tourists and locals, not only for its beautiful scenery, colonial architecture, vibrant colors and the famous Bahian cuisine, but for simplicity and peacefulness that it provides. Trancoso not matter if you are a multinational CEO, or store vendor at Quadrado, everyone is mixed in the same places and shares the same invigorating energy.
