Authenticity is the greatest luxury a visit to Brazil’s picturesque and historic Bahia state can offer. 

And no place delivers the experience like Trancoso’s Quadrado, its car-free, UNESCO-protected town square. 

Half UXUA’s casas here date back 500-years to the village’s founding. They were restored by designer Wilbert Das in collaboration with local artisans using traditional techniques and reclaimed materials.
These casas have a soul, each with legends and family history, every detail uniquely crafted by caring hands.
UXUA’s rustic beach lounge, Almescar Spa, Quadrado restaurant and 5-star service complete the perfect holiday.

Casa Mirante

Nearly 500-years ago Jesuits arrived in what they regarded as the new world. Hoping to earn favor of their god, they built a church and mission on a majestic hilltop overlooking the ocean in what is now Trancoso. Rainforest still arrives nearly to the door of the church, and hidden among those trees is a rustic retreat known as Casa Mirante (house of the overlook).
