São Miguel Arcanjo - Maximina Nogueira Torres, daughter of one of the settlers, in honor of her late husband, Miguel dos Santos Terra, donated land to the church for construction of a chapel under the invocation of the saint. In the mid-nineteenth century, settlers established themselves along the road linking southern Brazil and Sorocaba, forming new farms dedicated to different cultures. This is how the ancient neighborhood of Fazenda Velha arose. Became a village in April 1889. Today, São Miguel Arcanjo is considered the world’s capital of fine grapes.

Tourist attractions: Carlos Botelho State Park, Park Zizo, Onça Parda Park, Lagoon Guapé and wineries.
