A bit of history
During the '70s Trindade became a hippie refuge. In the ?80s it became a hidden pearl for adventurers from afar who ventured the long and tiresome dirt road (specially the uphill part known as "God Save Me") to reach the Paradise-like beaches of Trinidade. But since the '90s modern tourism have taken over the quiet village keeping its tranquil yet adding some of the comforts of modern life.
Fishermen villages were turned into rustic inns and bars, boutiques and small shops were opened and the road was paved.
Archeological diggings carried out in the '70s found several pieces of clothing and pottery and bones that belonged to prehistorical tribes. Until then one of the biggest problems for archeologists was the destruction of archeological sites by treasury hunters motivated by the legends of pirates and hidden treasures.
