It all began here. In the Cidade Alta of Porto Seguro you will find the marco do Descobrimento, a stone brought from Portugal at the beginning of the XVI century. Its mission was to affirm Portuguese sovereignty over the place where the stone was placed. Porto Seguro had been, after all, the entry point for the Portuguese discoverers of Brazil. One side of the stone has the cross of the Avis Order carved; on the other side you will find the coat of arms of Portugal.
