Capão Bonito - The name comes from ka'a pu'a (round brush or piece of grass isolated in the middle of the field). ‘Bonito’ (beautiful) was added by colonizers. Capão Bonito was initially a village located in the headwaters of river São José de Guapiara. The river receives the names of Apiaí-Mirim and Apiaí-Guaçu during its course, originating in the Serra do Paranapiacaba. The Arraial Velho village, according to historians, lasted little more than 40 years and was just a classic scout camp for pioneers, which was destroyed along with is early rustic chapel.
