Modern, Boa Vista stands out by organized urban layout radially, planned for the period between
1944 and 1946 by civil engineer Darcy Aleixo Derenusson, resembling a fan, alluding to the streets of
Paris, France
It was founded in the nineteenth century, in 1830, by Captain Ignacio Lopez de Magalhães.
Originated from one of the numerous cattle ranches located along rivers that make up the White River
basin under the jurisdiction of the then village of “São José da Barra do Rio Negro,” current Manaus.
In 1858 the village was elevated to parish category under the name of Our Rio Branco Lady of Mount
Carmel parish and July 9, 1890 the parish was elevated to a town, the seat of a new county called
Boa Vista do Rio Branco, created by the governor of Amazonas province, Augusto Ximeno Villeroy.
The municipal area of ​​Boa Vista village was spun off from the ancient Amazonian city of Moura.
In the Second World War, in 1943, it became the capital of the newly created Federal Territory of Rio
Branco and experienced its growth spurt due to mining. The then Federal Territory of Rio Branco,
which in 1962 was renamed the Federal Territory of Roraima, was elevated to the state with the same
name “Roraima” by the Constitution of 1988. Later the mining machinery was prohibited (for too much
damage to nature), which damaged the economiaestadual and municipal.
When the city belonged to Amazon, the municipal territory occupied part of the area corresponding to
the present state of Roraima, and the southern part of the State member of the municipality of Moura.
It was later divided into two municipalities, with the emergence of Catrimani (which was never
installed). Other municipalities were being emancipated and Boa Vista came to occupy its current
