COME TO KNOW THE
CITY OF ORCHIDS

It is impossible not to be enchanted by the colors and flavors of Maripá. Internationally known as the City of Orchids, it also built its image through cuisine and tractors. That's right, in addition to the beauty of the flowers and the irresistible roast fish, in Maripá is located the first Tractoródromo of Brazil, scene of the traditional Traccadão de Tratores. Those who enter the city through the PR-182 can observe these three symbols in the Tourist Portal.

Together with fish farming and orchid production, the city's economy strengthens the industrial, commercial and agricultural sectors, with the creation of chicken and pigs, besides the planting of soybeans, corn and cassava.

The estimated population, according to IBGE, is 5,624 inhabitants. The name of the municipality originates from the abbreviation of Madeireira Rio Paraná, an Anglo-Argentina company that, around 1905, began the exploration of wood and extraction of yerba mate in the region.

As for the title "Cidade das Orquídeas", it all began with Professor Zíria Dalchiavon, who in 1993 had the idea of planting orchids in the city's trees, in preparation for the 7 September parade. Over the years, cultivation became popular. In 1997, the city council designated Maripá as the City of Orchids. They are beauties that can be contemplated by every municipality.
