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

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
