The municipality of Arroio dos Ratos (14,151 inhabitants in 2019; 42,521 ha) is located west 60 km of Porto Alegre.

Arroio dos Ratos is self-styled the "Cradle of National Coal Industry". Coal mines were discovered in 1853 by the English engineer James Johnson; for decades, Arroio dos Ratos was the main center of coal industry in Brazil, operating the country's first thermal power plant. After the closure of the mines, coal exploitation was relocated to Charqueadas.
The municipality of Arroio dos Ratos was established on 28 December 1964, separating from São Jeronimo. Coal extraction resumed in 1982.
Arroio dos Ratos hosts the Coal State Museum, inaugurated on 31 March 1986 in the old thermal power plant, which was operated from 1924 to 1956.
Arroio dos Ratos is also known as the "Watermelon National Capital".
