São Pedro do Butiá is a municipality in the state Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. It is located at latitude 28 ° 07'28 "South and longitude 54 ° 53'14" West, with an altitude of 194 meters. Its population in 2004 was 2867 inhabitants.

 

The Mother Church in neo gothic Catholic, located in the center, is the most impressive local architecture. The older homes also reflect a process of transition and acculturation to the Teutonic-Brazilian dominant mainstream society.

 

On December 11, 2008 the "Monument of St. Peter" was inaugurated and also the "Germanic Missioneiro Center", two major attractions for tourism development in the municipality. The Monument of St. Peter is a concrete statue of 30 meters in height. Inside the statue is a chapel with a cross missionary of 10 meters in height. At the foot of the cross are relics brought from the Holy Land. The Center Germanic Missioneiro is a complex of four German-style houses, which have showroom, restaurant, museum and sale of colonial products.
