Fartura was founded by Manoel José Viana on a plot offered by this
father, Remígio José Viana, to erect a chapel dedicated to Our Lady of
the Sorrows, which was achieved in 1887.
The municipality of Fartura was established on 31 March 1891. The name
of the municipality means "abundance" in Portuguese, referring to the
plenty of game, fish and fruit in the region.
