The name Manaus came originally from the Manau tribe which was encountered in this region by Sao Luis do Maranhao, exploring the area in 1616.  He called the spot Sao Luis del Rio.  But it was Francisco do Motta Falco who really founded Manaus by building up the settlement and encouraging others to remain there with him.  The city you see today is primarily a product of the rubber boom and in particular the child of visionary state governor Eduardo Ribeiro, who from 1892 transformed Manaus into a major city.  Under him the Opera House was completed, and whole streets were wiped out in the process of laying down broad Parisian-style avenues, interspersed with Italian piazzas with splendid fountains.  In 1899 Manaus was the first Brazilian city to have trolley buses and only the second to have electric lights in the streets.
