Trends[edit]

The term Greater Vitória corresponds mainly to the area centered on Vitória, the capital of Espírito Santo, Brazil. Today the greatest part of industrial development is occurring in the Serra municipality, where many industries are building depots and factories. Those take advantage of the 3 Ports, Vitória Airport and the proximity to the ring road, which goes right though Serra, to distribute their products.
