Municipality

The municipality of Anta Gorda (6,216 inhabitants in 2017; 24,296 ha) is located 200 km of Porto Alegre. The municipality is composed of the districts of Anta Gorda (seat) and Itapuca.

Anta Gorda was established in 1904 by Italian colonists. As recalled by the monument erected on the town central's square, the town was named for a fat tapir one killed by hunters in the neighborhood. The size of the game impressed people, who recalled the place as "where they killed the fat tapir". In 1910, when Anta Gorda was made the 4th district of the municipality of Lajeado, its name was changed to Carlos Barbosa; due to the reluctance of the inhabitants to use the new name, Anta Gorda was offiically re-established two years later.

Anta Gorda was transferred in 1915 to the newly established municipality of Encantado, as its 2nd district. At the time, Anta Gorda counted 5,558 inhabitants and Itapuca 3,322. The establihsment in 1920 of the district of Putinga significantly decreased the territory and population of Anta Gorda.
Anta Gorda was the seat of the municipality of Encantado until 1936, while the district of Itapuca was transferred to Ilópolis from 1938 to 1950. In 1959, the establishment of the district of Dr. Ricardo decreased even more Anta Gorda's territory.
On 8 December 1963, 1,209 out of the 1,453 voters (83 %) approved the municipal emancipation of Anta Gorda. The first municipal elections were held on 29 March 1964.
