Arroio Trinta is a municipality in the state of Santa Catarina in the South region of Brazil. The population in 2010 was 3,502 inhabitants.[1]

History[edit]

Etymology[edit]

There is a degree of curiosity concerning the name of the town.[2] It is said that in order to arrive at the city of Videira (to which the town belonged until 1961), a small river (Arroio) had to be crossed thirty (Trinta) times, and for this reason the name of the town became Arroio Trinta.

Origin[edit]

The Italian descendants who immigrated to the region of Urussanga began to colonise Arroio Trinta in 1924. Until then, the population was made up of caboclos.[3]

The first mill of Arroio Trinta came a year later after the arrival of the first families and the first sawmill was established five years later.[4]
