Trancoso is a charming village in the municipality of Porto Seguro, on the south coast of Bahia. It joins a lovely beach scene, to the best gastronomy and excellence in lodging.
The history of this paradisiac place began at the time of colonization, with the arrival of the Portuguese expeditions at the time of Brazil’s discovery. The main landmark of that period was the construction of the emblematic Church of St. John the Baptist, erected in 1656 and which until today is the landmark of Trancoso and stage of sophisticated marriages.
In the early 70’s, the village was rediscovered by young travelers and hippies, but over time, it ceased to be an isolated and unstructured place to become one of the most special, respected and popular tourist destinations in northeastern Brazil.
The historic colorful houses of the famous Quadrado, located in the heart of Trancoso, are no longer exclusively a dwelling place of the local community to become the main attraction of the region with the best options of restaurants, bars and shops.
Reserva Trancoso invited Bob Wolfenson, one of the country’s leading photographers, to bring his contribution to this project: to translate into beautiful photographs his passion for Trancoso, a place that has always been part of his days.
