About the City of Campo GrandeSatellite view showing Campo Grande (Big Field) in the center of Mato Grosso do Sul, one of the 26 Brazilian states, which is situated in the Center-West region of Brazil.
Campo Grande was founded in 1877 at the confluence of two creeks, the Prosa and Segredo. The settlement was then known as Santo Antônio de Campo Grande. It has evolved since the early 20th century from a small village to a bustling city with 800,000 inhabitants. In 1977 Mato Grosso state was split and Campo Grande became the capital of the new state of Mato Grosso do Sul.
Campo Grande is the main gateway to the southern Pantanal, one of the world's largest freshwater wetland ecosystems, a vast almost uninhabited region in central west of Brazil, about half the size of Germany. The Pantanal Conservation Area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The largest city in Mato Grosso do Sul lies 500 m above sea level in a highland tropical climate zone with a dry winter season from June until September. Annual average temperatures are around 23° C.
