Piedade - The name is in honor of Nossa Senhora de Piedade. It is located between the mountains of Paranapiacaba and São Francisco. Its social composition is related to the native population of the coast and major rivers: Sarapuí, Pirapora and Turvo. In the twentieth century, Piedade receives the arrival of Italian, Japanese, German and Spanish immigrants. Between the 70’s and 80’s, it is considered the capital of onion. The recession in 90’s takes Piedade to new endeavors, including rural and ecological tourism and emergency economies, such as the mushroom Agaricus blazei, wild boar, shrimp from Malaysia, ostriches, persimmon and artichoke.
