Colatina

city, central Espirito Santo estado (state). It is located in eastern Brazil on the Doce River, about 60 miles (100 km) from its mouth on the Atlantic coast, at 131 feet (40 metres) above sea level. Given city status in 1921, Colatina is a transportation, trade, and manufacturing centre for the state's interior. Its hinterland is the state's most important agricultural region and one of Brazil's largest coffee-producing areas. There is also lumbering. The bridge spanning the Doce River at Colatina has made the city, which is 60 miles northwest of Vitoria, the state capital, an important point in the regional railroad network. Colatina is also connected by highways and has an airport. Pop. (2005 est.) 89,500
