Bento de Abreu was founded on 24 July 1926 on the banks of river Aguapeí by farmers and traders brought there by the "Estrada de Ferro Noroeste do Brasil" railway. The main colonist was the Italian Geremia Lunardelli, one of the biggest coffee growers ever in Brazil. The settlement was first named Lunardelli, a name subsequently changed for Albinópolis. The district of Alto Pimenta - the original name of the area - was established by Decree No. 5,888 of 25 April 1933.
