An Old Train Station art print would fit very well in a home that values historical themes. The Batatais Station is a famous recollection.
Batatais is a city that is highly present in my father’s family’s memories. Our people is from that region and the town has important historical marks, as well as being an important old commercial post.
Batatais is a municipality in the state of São Paulo in Brazil. The settlement an independent municipality in 1839. It became a city in 1875. In 2015 the population of mostly Italian-Brazilians was about 60,589.
There are at least four theories for the meaning of the name “Batatais”:
- Local Native Americans cultivated potatoes. Batatais is the potato fields in portuguese.
- A second Native American version: “BAITATA” means “river running through the rocks”.
- Another Native American option: “MBOITATA”, snake of fire. Small gas fields exist around the area so….
- Batatais or Batatal was an expression describing the place where gold could be found. This region was part of the old way to the Goias mines. The city was possibly a resting place for the travelers.
