The municipality pf Morro da Fumaça (17,796 inhabitants in 2019; 8,294 ha) is located 200 km south-west of Florianópolis.

Morro da Fumaça was settled in 1900 by Bielorussian immigrants, who lived from pig breeding. In 1910, they moved to other places colonized by Russians and sold their estates to Italian colonists coming from Rio Cocal, Rio América, Rio Carvão and Rio Galo.

The municipality's odd name (Smoke Hill) might refer to a marshy area that created a dense fog at dawn, which completely concealed the hill, or to people transporting products to the port of Laguna who set up a fire atop the hill where they spent the night, generating smoke that could be seen from miles away.
