Vitoria, Ilha do Mel

Vitoria, capital of Espirito Santo state, has a population of about one million in the metropolitan area. It is located in a beatiful island very close to the continent. It is a busy seaport and a growing industrial center (steel, textile, sugar refineries, cocoa). Together with Tubarao, just north of city, Vitoria is the leading iron-ore port of Brazil. Vitoria is 460 years old. The people are very representative of the Brazilian melting pot (Italians, Germans, Native Americans, Portuguese, African Americans). The food is delicious, especially fish cooked in clay pot. It is located just 50 minutes from Rio de Janeiro, by plane. Beaches are wonderful and most of the time the weather is very good, sunny and warm.
