History of Avaré

In 1554, the Jesuit priests Manoel de Nobrega and Jose de Anchieta established the College of St. Paul Piratininga. Only in the early 18th century, however, the pioneers were founding cities that roamed the bush. In that century, were discovered mines of precious metals in the current state of Minas Gerais and in Cuiabá, Mato Grosso today. Then there is the famous Emboabas War.

São Paulo, Brazilian Portuguese and other regions that went to the mining areas used to do everything not to pay the fifth, ie, the tax which determined that 20% of found should be referred to the Portuguese crown. To avoid it, we built a fortress in Iguatemi.

It was established so a direct path between the deposits of minerals and Sorocaba, a city where the house stood Foundry responsible for transforming the gold into bars and remove the portion belonging to the government. The fort then became identified as the mouth of the interior, some houses and gardens were gathering to have emerged to ensure replenishment of food.

In the early 19th century the Paranapanema Valley, still an inhospitable region, was seen as a way to Paraguay, becoming known as Peabiru Road, the main east-west route in the penetration of the continent. The way of Peabiru, incidentally, served as a stimulus to enter the region in order to establish population centers. The starting point of the flags was almost always Sorocaba, the most advanced cities, base for penetration and momentum to the mines of Mato Grosso. Known as "mouth of the interior," the region has attracted adventurers, travelers and hunters of Indians, which gradually scoured the lands inhabited by Indians and the families of Caiuás Botucudos. There are several conflicts with the natives and the greed for mineral value is not confirmed. The greatest wealth is the fertility of the land, guaranteed by irrigation of the Paranapanema Valley.

Squatters led by Jose Theodore and Titus de Souza Correa de Mello, at that time, open up the jungle with their machetes and step on the soil than would be the future Avare. Conquer the land exterminating the Indians who still lived there and seek to attract residents to these fertile lands.

Among these settlers was Major Victorian Souza Rocha that the May 15, 1862, appeared before the notary Francisco Antonio Castro, in Botucatu, for donation of 24 acres of land on the banks of the river Lageado, a tributary of New River to constitute the patrimony of the votive chapel under the invocation of Our Lady of Sorrows, in this particular patron saint of miners donations, which he built.

Tito was probably the one who called relatives to take possession of those lands. Among them, the Victorian Major de Souza Rocha and Domitian Alferes Jose Santana, who came to the region, attracted by the possibility of obtaining large crops of good quality land and water. The Victorian dream came to be counted in the poet Djalma Noronha, author also of the words to the song of the present city of Avare, chosen in 1961.
Call Heritage of Our Lady of Sorrows of the New River, in its infancy, Avare saw the first manifestations of religious in the mid 19th century, according to the reports of the chronicler Jango Pires, the first historian avareense. According to him, in 1862, a cross, covered with bamboo and leaf indaiá, was raised amid the current Square Juca Novaes.

"There are prayed on Sunday for the third month ´chaplain´, a title that was given to the man who watched over the makeshift temple. After the prayer was an auction of small gifts and the product was stored and is designed to build the future chapel, "said Jango, based on the testimony of an Italian immigrant friendly, Colonel Joseph Magaldi, also counted among the founders of the town . The same colonel revealed what was in his youth: "When they built the chapel, I and my companions were going to do our pagodeiras abandoned in Santa Cruz. It was there that night we would laugh. "

Well the way, incidentally, was the rhyme of Djalma Noronha in verses of the hymn dedicated to the "metropolis so beautiful," which melodically animate the imagery of avareense around the environment of their brave ancestors, "earth loving kind of a people was your March a humble chapel. "

The settlement arose from the New River, in the light of Christian faith around a votive chapel, a result of the devotion of a backwoodsman Our Lady of Sorrows. The fact was romanticized versions and won the point that some versions now legendary obstruct a clear understanding of its historical formation.

Jango Pires notes have been built in 1864, the then Major Chapel, "stick a pike, barreada beams and covered with tile vain" in the place where today is exactly the main entrance or front door of the Shrine of Our Lady of Pain. The chapel measured sixty feet on the court, or about 17 square meters. This was the first church of the place.

However, surveys conducted by Archbishop Emeritus of Botucatu, Dom Vicente Zioni Marchetti, extracted from the archives of the Archbishopric, another mention date for the construction of this chapel: May 28, 1861. Also records that on July 10, the humble chapel had been solemnly opened with the prayer of the Mass for the first vicar of Botucatu.

"It is said that the celebrant was Father Joaquim Gonçalves Pacheco. But you have to rectify this data, viewed as such since 1850 was no longer a priest vicar of Botucatu. It is said that from then on, every Sunday evening, gathered around the square in the chapel or the few residents of the place, numbering 83, to pray the Litany of Our Lady of the Victorian Major graciously presided. Then, around a campfire, Chico Tootles, quick on the guitar, played and sang songs like that of the hinterland as simple folk, to the applause of onlookers. Finally Major distributed quentão of rum of his wit, served in small bowls, "says Don Zioni.

 In 1867, an Administrative Panel was appointed to look after the assets of the Chapel of Our Lady of Sorrows, by the vicar of Botucatu. Board composed this three influential personalities of yore: Marcellino Manoel de Souza Franco, the first teacher of the village, better known by his nickname Maneco Dionysus, and immigrants Joseph Magaldi and Antonio Bento Alves.

The January 13, 1869, with the introduction of the canonical process for the final establishment of the Heritage of Our Lady of Sorrows in the Ecclesiastical Board of St. Paul, the Victorian and other major donors have been subpoenaed to testify about the customary donation of plots land that gave the future town.

"At that time the major Victorian Souza Rocha stated that the age of 83 years and was born in Bragança, his wife, Mrs. Gertrude Cardoso de Oliveira said he was 73 years old and a native of Bragança, Domitian said Jose Santana with 73 years of age and born in Mogi das Cruzes and his wife, Mrs. Gertrude Maria da Luz to be 63, and a native of Mogi Mirim, "Sun Zioni records. Archbishop withdrew the data from the file stored in the original case file from the Metropolitan Curia Botucatu.
