Anápolis is a Brazilian municipality of the State of Goiás. It is located between two capitals, the federal capital Brasília and state capital Goiânia. It is the third most populous city in the state, with 361 991 inhabitants according to an estimate by the Brazilian Institute of Geographic and Statistics in 2012. It is an important industrial and logistics center in the Brazilian Central-West. Its GDP is R$ 10 billion, approximately 4.4 billion, which makes it the second largest in the state. The city became an industrial power after the implementation of its Industrial District in 1970.EtymologyAnápolis means "city of Ana" in Greek (Ana + polis, city).HistoryThe settlement began in the 18th century, due to the travels of the drovers to the region of gold mines in the nearby towns. Some of the travelers, when they did not find any more precious metals, decided to settle in the thorp. The first historical registry was written in 1819, when the French naturalist and traveler Auguste de Saint-Hillaire, traveling from Bonfim (Silvânia) towards Meia-Ponte (Pirenópolis), stays in the region called Tapirs' Farm. This name is due to the abundance of this animal in the region. The first official document was written in April 25, 1870, when a group of residents made a donation of some parts of their lands to the Our Lady of Saint Anne Patrimony.Take the guesswork out of planning a Brazil vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
