Serra do Salitre is located in the eastern corner of the famed Triângulo Mineiro, some of Brazil’s prime coffee country. Though the climate is tropical, a relatively high altitude allows for temperature variation throughout the year. Along with coffee, the city is famous for the production of cheese, pottery, and crafts. Captain Manoel Luiz Leite de Alcobaça, who owned a large farm in the area, sought a place to build a church. On July 13th, 1853, the cornerstone of the chapel was laid on the mountain side that would later become the base for the community. Serra do Salitre was incorporated as town 100 years later, in 1953.
