The territory of Anapolis and its environs is dominated by a mountainous, rugged climate with distinctly wet and dry seasons. Its occupation by Europeans began in the middle of the 17th century, after the Portuguese colonists from San Pauwu arrived there. Their main purpose was to search for mineral deposits, especially gold and precious stones.
