Photographer's Note

Notes: The Monte Mochuara mountain is home to several species threatened with extinction, such as the ara釿 do mato, the pau-d'alho, the cobi-da-terra, the cobi-da-pedra, the jequitib and the jeriquitim. Its fauna is composed of hummingbirds, woodpeckers, lizards and other animals. The magnificence of the mountain served as a reference for travelers and adventurers who, in the first centuries of Brazil, roamed the hinterlands of Esprito Santo in search of new lands and mineral riches. In the language of the Indians who inhabited the place, the name Mochuara means sister stone, but historical accounts say that when French corsairs arrived in Vitria Bay, the mist that covered the hill resembled an immense white cloth. Hence the expression mouchoir, which means handkerchief and is pronounced "muchu". From the hill descended the Cariacica River, which gave its name to the Municipality.




Notas: O Monte Mochuara habitat de diversas esp馗ies amea軋das de extin鈬o, como o ara釿 do mato, o pau-d'alho, o cobi-da-terra, o cobi-da-pedra, o jequitib e o jeriquitim. Sua fauna composta de beija-flores, pica-paus, lagartos e outros bichos. A impon麩cia do monte, serviu de refer麩cia para os viajantes e aventureiros que, nos primeiros s馗ulos do Brasil, percorriam os sertes do Esprito Santo em busca de novas terras e riquezas minerais. Na lngua dos ndios que habitavam o local, o nome Mochuara quer dizer pedra irm, mas relatos histricos dizem que quando cors疵ios franceses chegaram Baia de Vitria, a neblina que encobria o monte lembrava um imenso pano branco. Da a express縊 mouchoir, que quer dizer len輟 e se pronuncia "muchu". Do monte descia o Rio Cariacica, que deu nome ao Municpio.
