Summary[edit]

Description
Português: A ponte fica numa vila de mesmo nome e conta com menos de 100 habitantes e fica situada as margens do lago da represa de Furnas. Foi elevada a distrito do município de Piumhi em 19 de dezembro de 1896, com o nome de Bocaina de Minas, e teve seu nome alterado para Santo Hilário em homenagem ao francês Auguste de Saint-Hilaire, por decreto em 7 de setembro de 1923, tendo sido transferida ao município de Pimenta quando da sua emancipação, em 4 de abril de 1946. Também chamada de Capetinga, nome do porto fluvial (Porto Capetinga) e do ribeirão que passava por la e desaguava no rio Grande (Ribeirão Capetinga), por seus antigos moradores, pode ter nascido como São Sebastião do Rio Grande, em homenagem ao padroeiro, São Sebastião. A vila foi quase toda submersa pelo lago da represa de Furnas, restando somente o cemitério. Importante porto do Rio Grande, último da parte navegável do rio, que ligava a estrada de ferro que vinha do Rio de Janeiro até a cidade de Ribeirão Vermelho, o primeiro porto ao sertão. Serviu de entreposto de mercadorias que vinham de trem e depois de barco para o Centro-Oeste e produtos agropecuários do Centro-Oeste para o Rio de Janeiro. Com grande vocação para o turismo, a vila renasceu e hoje fica espremida entre a montanha e a represa.

With great vocation for tourism, the village has been reborn and is now squeezed between the mountain and the dam.
