Photographer's Note

Paraibuna has their linked origins to pioneers of the century XVII, and to the first sesmaria donated in their lands in 1773, founded by the governor of São Luiz of Paraitinga, Manuel Antônio of Carvalho, that started to control the two nuclei. It receives the town title in 1832, with the name of Santo Antônio of Paraibuna and, in 1857 it was already city.

He/she begins growing in the half of the century XIX, with the culture of coffee. With the construction of the dams of CESP (Energy Company of São Paulo), the city looks for new possibilities, with the use of the dam for several activities. And in the days today, Paraibuna is looking for new alternatives for his/her development, mainly with activities as the Tourism Rural, Ecological, Nautical, Gastronomical and Historical.
