CAMBÉ, CITY BUILT BY
THE HANDS OF COLUMNS

Cambé originates from the Tupi language - "caá" means forest, tree, and "mbê", aerial roots. The area where the current municipality of Cambé is located comprised an immense forest and in these lands lived several indigenous peoples. In January 1932, the rural settlement of Nova Dantzig was founded - in homage to the homonymous German city, where the first families arrived. The place was renamed Cambé in 1943 and emancipation took place on October 10, 1947.

Currently, Cambé has, according to IBGE data, an estimated population of 105,704 people. The municipality has soy-based agriculture and has a rich industrial park, but tourism in the city also stands out. Attractions such as the Luminous Fountain, the Zezão Municipal Park, the Danziger Hof Municipal Historic Park, the Cambé Historical Museum and the Feast of Nations are some examples of what the city has to offer.
