about Domingos Martins

Domingos Martins is the name of a municipality and its capital. It is situated in the state of Espírito Santo. According to the IBGE census of 2000, the municipality had 30,559 inhabitants, of which 5,820 were urban dwelling (mainly in the capital). It has a population density of 21.1 inhabitants/km².

Domingos Martins geography

Domingos Martins is approximately 60 km east of the capital, Vitória, and is 542 meters above sea level. Bordering municipalities include Castelo, Venda Nova do Imigrante, and Afonso Claudio to the west, Santa Maria de Jetiba and Santa Leopoldina to the north, Cariacica and Viana to the east, and Guarapari, Marechal Floriano, Aflredo Chaves and Vargem Alta to the south. The municipality itself is again subdivided into 5 districts (distritos): Capital (Sede in Portuguese), Aracê, Santa Isabel, Parajú and Melgaço. The total area occupied by the municipality is 1,231 Km².

It is in the mountainous region of the state and is marketed as the "Green City", due to the fact it is surrounded by subtropical rainforest, much of which has disappeared in the rest of the region. Within its borders lie mountains of up to 2000m, amongst which is the well-known Pedrda Azul State Park comprised mainly of a quartzite rock jutting out of the surrounding landscape at 1,822m above sea level. It has a blue tinge to the stone due to the kind of lichens which grow on it, which gives the name to the formation and the park.

Domingos Martins history

This town, founded in 1893, was then known as Campinho. Part of the colony of Santa Isabel, it was first a secondary district to Santa Isabel colony, but soon outgrew its capital, and gained the title of capital from it later on. Domingos Martins acquired its present name on the 20th of December 1921, given in honour of Domingos José Martins who fought in the Pernambuco Revolution, 1817, when the region sought independence from Brazil. He was executed in Salvador on the 12th of June 1817, accused of treason.

The Lutheran-Confessional Evangelical Church in the town square ("Praça" Arthur Gerhardt-Square) was founded on the 20th of May 1866 and is considered the first evangelical church in Brazil to have a bell tower, as at that time only Catholic churches were permitted to build bell towers. A salient feature in the history of the municipality is the presence of Pomeranian immigrants, who came from a region that is now part of Germany and Poland. This population often finds itself in difficult-to-access areas, and many still speak Pomeranian, though today it is thought to be extinct in their homeland.
