Port of Santa Cruz Cabrlia in Porto Seguro, Bahia. low tide, in Rio Joo de Tiba.

Santa Cruz de Cabrlia stands out in the Discovery Coast for its natural beauties and historical / cultural.
The story shows the great importance of this City to Brazil, since it was in the Red Crown Beach where the ships landed Pedro Alvares Cabral in 1500 and where we celebrated the 1st Mass in Brazil on April 26, 1500.
Santa Cruz de Cabrlia has practically deserted beaches, navigable rivers, ideal for nautical sports and excursions, and towns in bucolic aspect.

The city lies between the Rio Joo de Tiba and a natural breakwater, located in Bay Cabrlia. In this area there was, initially, the village of Santa Cruz, founded by the donee Pero do Campo Tourinho Aimors destroyed by Indians in 1564. The site corresponds to the current area of Patax Tribe Indian Reservation, established in the Red Crown, and is one of the most significant icons of the Discovery Coast.
