Atibaia is a small town near to SÃ£o Paulo. In the century XVII, it was an important place because of a group called Bandeirantes â€“ adventurers who used to explore unknown places around Brazil looking for indigenous tribes and precious metal.
This group usually started its long and difficult journey from SÃ£o Paulo and the very first town to rest it would be Atibaia, which was well-known for having great water for the adventurers.
