In the past, Angra dos Reis before the arrival of the Europeans, was inhabited by indigenous tribes Tupinambás and was one of the most important ports of the coast of Rio de Janeiro. There they loaded ships loaded with materials from the other side of the world and also of slaves to supply the labor in the coffee plantations of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

The changes of time throughout the year, occur with the arrival of cold fronts.
In the summer, the strong warming causes clouds of storms like Cumulus Nimbus, the famous summer rains, which occur more frequently in the afternoon and early evening.
