Things to do: shopping, museums, nightlife
Mauá is a municipality in the state of São Paulo, in Brazil. Is part of the metropolitan region of São Paulo. The population as of 2006 is 413,943 inhabitants, the density is 6,645.4/km² and the area is 62.6 km². The density is in fact bigger, since one third of the city is occupied by industries and 10% is countryside or forest. Its name comes from the Tupi language and means the one that is high. As it's a municipality, it can also be translated as high city. However, back when the city was a small village, its name was Pilar, then the name was changed in 1934 into Mauá as a homage to Visconde de Mauá, entrepreneur which built the railway Santos-Jundiaí that passes through the city.Mauá has the 23rd largest GDP of São Paulo state.Is the birthplace of Brazilian tableware industry.EconomyAlthough there are various types of economic activity in the city, Maua is still remembered as the "Capital of China and Pottery", because this activity was very important for the development of the municipality. There are two industrial centers and a large petrochemical complex plant where the refinery of Petrobras is located, the RECAP. These poles transformed Mauá into one of the largest industrial parks in the country. Major road interventions are being implemented, which, due to the improved access to the city should influence the growth of industrial activity, who nowadays suffers with the bottleneck of the road network and its chronic lack of maintenance.
