Trancoso is a small town in the state of Bahia in eastern Brazil. Portuguese explorer Pedro Alvares Cabral first landed on the land in 1500, and Trancoso was founded as a Jesuit mission in 1583.

Today, it is best known for its white sand beaches, natural swimming pools caused by reefs at low tide, luxurious resorts and villas, and colorful architecture.
