What is the origin of the name Diamantina?
Diamantina was emancipated from the municipality of Serro only in 1831, changing its name to Diamantina because of the large volume of diamonds found in the region. Its name means: like the diamond. The formation of the municipality is intrinsically linked to the exploration of gold and diamonds. Around 1722, the settlement began, always following the banks of the rivers that were mined.
In 1938, the architectural ensemble of the city's Historic Center was listed by the National Historical and Artistic Heritage Institute, and, in the late 1990s, worldwide recognition came: Diamantina receives the title of Cultural Heritage of Humanity from Unesco.
The Diamond Museum currently exists in the city and the city is also the birthplace of President Juscelino Kubitschek, who built the current capital Brasilia.
