Boituva is a municipality in the state of São Paulo in Brazil. It is part of the Metropolitan Region of Sorocaba. The population is 55,725 (2015 est.) in an area of 248.97 km². The elevation is 637 metres.It is known as the "National Skydive Capital". In Tupi, Boituva means "many snakes".Short historyThe first inhabitants that formed the settlement called at that time Boituva Fields, began settling here in the late 18th century according to official history.Some scholars affirm that the pioneers of Boituva arrived by train, the former Sorocabana Railway. Others, however assert that the first inhabitants were ex-workers of the then extinct iron smeltery on Ipanema farm, thus closed, forcing them to acquire neighboring lands.In the second or third decade Boituva gained fame – and is known until today – as The Land of Pineapple, since the first culture on a large scale was pineapple. The quality of the fruit was such that it was awarded a gold medal in a national level exposition, realized in São Paulo, thus emerging the Boituvana variety of pineapple.The political-administrative emancipation of Boituva occurred on September 6, 1937, the date of which is now commemorated with the celebration known as Boituvana.
