Sculpture of Vinícius, commemorating his work "Um tarde em Itapoã".

Itapoã is where Dona Flor (from the Jorge Amado novel Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands) gave up her virginity to the scoundrel who was to become her first husband. It was also home to poet/playwright/lyricist Vinícius de Moraes for a number of years, and composer Dorival Caymmi. Vinícius, together with his collaborator Toquinho, wrote and performed an evocative hymn to the bucolic village of the time.[1]
