From the 'mountain that cries' to the 'river that sings'

The Mantiqueira Mountains is one of the most beautiful regions in Minas Gerais, filled with mountains that seem to embrace us. The name 'Mantiqueira' is a gift from the language of the indigenous peoples, meaning 'raindrop,' highlighting its importance as a source of drinking water and the formation of rivers that supply various cities in the Southeast region of Brazil. One of the rivers born in the Mantiqueira is the Sapucaí River, stretching 343 km, which gives its name to Santa Rita do Sapucaí. 'Sapucaí' derives from 'Sapucaia' and is another indigenous gift, meaning 'river that sings, river that shouts.' It is a beautiful body of water that cuts through our city, bringing life to the urban area. In its surroundings, we can witness the flocks of herons at sunset and the presence of capybaras at dusk. It is also where nature blends with Urban Art. Santa Rita do Sapucaí is a charming place, not only for its landscape but also for its people. (Re)visit and (re)fall in love with Santa Rita do Sapucaí... A Creative city in search of Happiness!
