Peruíbe - Its name means river of sharks. Its origin is linked to the history of São Vicente and the trajectory of the Jesuits in the coast of São Paulo. In the sixteenth century, a Jesuit mission established in the village of São João Batista or São João da Aldeia, which aimed to convert and pacify the Indians Carijós and Tamoios, who lived south of the province of Itanhaém, was to serve as a resting area for travelers. It was located in a strategic region to the defense against attacks by pirates. From the late eighteenth century, with the expulsion of the Jesuits from Brazil, the core of Peruíbe declined and only resumed its development in the mid-twentieth century as a resort town. In 1959, the district became a municipality of Itanhaém, and in 1974 was recognized as a seaside resort. It has been developed in an orderly fashion, attracting major investors and seeking sustainable development.
