The municipality of Santo Antônio da Patrulha (42,658 inhabitants in 2017; 104,981 ha) is located 80 km north-east of Porto Alegre. The municipality is composed of the districts of Santo Antônio da Patrulha (seat), Miraguaia, Catanduva Grande, Pinheirinhos, Evaristo and Chicolomã.

Santo Antônio da Patrulha was one of the first four municipalities established in Rio Grande do Sul in 1809. "Gardens and houses" were settled in 1743 and placed under the custody of Inácio José de Mendonça e Silva and his wife Margarida Exaltação da Cruz, who are considered as the town's founders. Administrative and social organization of the settlement was initiated in 1760 after the inauguration of the chapel of Santo Antônio da Guarda Velha de Viamão.
The Municipal Chamber of Santo Antônio da Patrulha was inaugurated on 3 April 1811. The subsequent division of the original territory through successive emancipation processes made of Santo Antônio da Patrulha the root of 77 municipalities forming four "generations".
