Cuiabá was founded on January 1, 1727 by Rodrigo César de Menezes, then the "captain" of the captaincy of São Paulo in the aftermath of the discovery of gold mines. It was given township status in 1818 and became the capital in 1835.

The city is an intersection of many major roads and waterways. It is also the geographic centre of South America and is famous throughout Brazil as one of the country's hottest metropolises, where temperatures are often above 40°C (104°F). The third most important airport of the Brazilian Mid-West region is located in Cuiabá, and the city is the centre of an important and productive agricultural region. Cuiabá is also known as the Southern gate to the Amazon.
