A brief history about Icarai de Amontada

The territory of Amontada was part of the lands of the indigenous Tremembé and the settlement dates back to the beginning of the 17th century, when the Jesuits and the priests of the order of São Pedro took the initial steps to introduce their religion to the Tremembé. At the time of the breeding of livestock in Ceará (early 18th century), the Portuguese designated this location as a resting place for the cowboys who came from the Uruburetama mountain range, on the banks of the Aracatiaçu river. Originally, its name was São Bento da Amontada, then São Bento da Ribeira do Aracatiaçu, São Bento and since 1963, Amontada. The local economy was based on agriculture: cotton, cashews and beans.
