Zé and Zilda were the most recent native parents to raise a large, happy family in this antique fisherman's casa at the heart of the Historic Quadrado. For an authentic dose of Trancoso visitors can’t do better than stay here. Antiques include precious pieces of Trancoso history, from antique painted signs to a religious oratorio (a traditional alter found in old Bahian homes).


A table in front of the casa invites al fresco dinner parties or cocktails on the historic square, while a rustic table inside offers a more intimate option. Quadrado views from the kitchen, dining or the airy living room with its deep sofas.
