Morro de São Paulo (translation: St. Paul's Hill) is one of 5 villages of the island Tinharé in the municipality of Cairu, located in the state of Bahia, Brazil.

History[edit]

Martim Afonso de Sousa, landed in 1531 and baptized this island “Tynharéa” and the Bahian accent soon transformed that name to “Tinharé”. In 1535 the village of Morro de São Paulo was founded in the extreme north of the island by Francisco Romero and the local population.

The village is 272 km from the city of Salvador by route and 60 km by sea. The only way to get to the island is by boat or by charter flights that go from the airport of Salvador to the local airstrip or by regular flights to Valença Airport.
