The village of Arembepe became known throughout the world from the 1960s on thanks to the existence of the hippie village. At the end of the 1960s, young people from all over the world came here for the holidays and to live according to the concept of counterculture and the motto of peace and love, which was opposed by the Cold War and the Vietnam War. Janis Joplin, Mick Jagger, Novos Baianos, Ney Matogrosso, Rita Lee, Gal Costa and Paulo Coelho were some of the artists who celebrated the place. Pousada A Capela supports a project to create an open-air museum in the village.
