Produced for a municipal school atlas, this material on our locality seeks to awaken the curiosity and liking for knowledge on local history. These history pages of the Atlas of Rio Claro highlight the occupation and populating processes, the attribution of sesmarias (lands given by the Kings of Portugal), their division in fazendas, as well as the sugar cane, coffee, slaves, immigrants and the changes that took place in Rio Claro until the beginning of the XXth century.
