Vila Velha is part of the metropolitan Vitória, which is one of Brazil’s oldest capitals. A city that has modernized itself without losing sight of its historical background. It unites past and present in the same beautiful scene, from the traditions of fishermen and clay potmakers to the many buildings and monuments in the Historical Center with its churches and secular convents.

The city has beautiful mangroves, parks, squares and gardens. It is one of the most arboreous cities in Espírito Santo. There are 91 square meters of green area for each inhabitant that are distributed between leisure retreats and environmental preservation areas. Ecosystems that shelter hundreds of flora and fauna species, and contribute to the quality of life of the residents as well as enchanting visitors.

Fishes, shrimps and crabs, prepared in clay pots, are the basic ingredients of the Capixaba fish stew and pie, which is the most traditional plate. However the city also offers visitors a chance to navigate through an enormous variety of seasonings and flavors. Dozens of restaurants, which are guaranteed by the townhall’s standard Quality Seal, cultivate and reinvent Brazilian and international dishes.

The sun illuminates Vitória and shines across its bay of clear waters, unmasking the calm and cozy beaches that welcome residents and visitors. And when night falls, the city joy is revealed in the charming bars and night clubs where there is always a smile and friendly word for new arrivals. Furthermore, Vitória offers a varied and sophisticated commerce which can attend to the most demanding customers.
