Trancoso, Brazil

(Trancoso, Brazil) — What makes Trancoso special is not just the beauty of the beaches, the nice hotels and people, but also the great food. The whole town is built around the Quadrado, a long square in the center of town with a National Geographic-perfect colonial church at the end. The Quadrado is the center of the village’s activities and nice restaurants, galleries and shops line its periphery.  Each night, the town promenades around the oval road, so sitting at the tables is just fantastic people watching. My favorite restaurants are El Gordo, Restaurante Vitoria and Restaurant da Silvana.

El Gordo, UXUA article in Vogue, here’s a great article on Trancoso restaurants by the website Brazil for Insiders by two beautiful journalists,

Nothing beats a cool breeze blowing the white curtains around the pool at El Gordo, with cool Brazilian music wafting over the infinity pool, making every sip and bite that much better.

Looking for a great meal on the beach? Sit under the palapas at Estrela d’Agua. Really amazing food. Not cheap, but well worth it.
