Great view ...must-see spot along with the whole 'quadrado' area...late afternoon after 5:30 makes it perfect for a breezy walk...

A very beautiful church in a stunning location, indeed the whole of the Quadrado is pretty special, particularly at night.

It is a beautiful small church from the 18th century located at the end of the Quadrado, with the sea behind it. It is a must for pictures. Do not miss it!

This is. The second oldest church of Brasil.. As this is one of the early ones dont expect luxury as the churches in Salvador.. It is a small and well maintained church that showed how early portuguese kept their catholic faith while eploring new parts of the world .

Incredibly solid construction with more than 500 yrs. It was informed that its walls are 1meter thick and were placed together with oil from whales, which was a common material fro constructions at the time.

Igreja de São João Batista descoberta pelos jesuítas em 1586. Localizada no quadrado, lugar icônico de Trancoso, hoje palco de diversos casamentos. Tive a sorte de visitar logo após o 2o casamento do fim de semana.

São João Batista, a church founded in 1586 by the jesuítas. Its locates at "Quadrado" an iconic place in Trancoso. In the last couple years has been a reference for several weddings. I had a great opportunity to visit just after one of it.

There is almost no historic information and no support. Besides the view of the beaches, you have just the chance to buy some fine stuff in the stores or have (really) good food at some of the restaurantes. Too crowded and nothing added at the night. Go there just for the food and shopping, mainly by end of afternoon.
