Sala São Paulo

In the middle of the 19th century, coffee became the most important product in the Brazilian economy, and its cultivation expanded rapidly west of the city of São Paulo. With the plantations being built increasingly distant from the seaport and capital, transportation soon became an issue. At that time, the coffee beans were transported by packs of mules, through precarious roads at a rate of about twenty kilometers per day. The costs of transporting the crop became impractical for plantation owners, whose land was often located more than 180 kilometers away from the city of São Paulo.

Irineu Evangelista de Souza, the Baron of Mauá, devised São Paulo’s first railroad. His goal was to connect the port city of Santos with an interconnected railway that reached all the way to the city of Jundiaí, in the center of the state. Such a system of railways would cross the Serra do Mar, the mountain range that runs along the coast of southeastern Brazil and creates many difficulties in transportation from one city to another.
