A very common site in Vitoria is the site of police standing guard in places to prevent violence. This is an area very well-known for its high murder rate. In fact, nearly 57 people out of every 100,000 will end up dead thanks to someone who doesn’t want them alive anymore. It’s not something that many people are willing to discuss, but there is a very high crime rate here and it’s dangerous for not only residents but especially for visitors in this South American city.
