A brief history about Angra dos Reis

The first records of the region date back to January 6, 1502, discovered by the Portuguese Golçalves Coelho on his expedition. The region was previously occupied by the indigenous Tamoios Indians. Its principal economic activity was the planting of sugarcane and coffee and it became one of the largest ports at the time of Brazil's empire, with periods of decline. It recovered with the completion of a road railroad that connected Minas Gerais to the port of Angra, reactivating it for import and export, but it was in the 1960s that the city's economy really took off with the completion of the Verolme shipyard (later renamed as Keppel Fels) for construction and ship repair.
