The municipality is composed of the districts of Grão-Pará (seat), Aiurê (est. by State Law No. 853 promulgated on 14 November 1962) and Invernada (est. by State Law No. 852 promulgated on 14 November 1962).

Grão-Pará was established on 2 December 1882 as the central seat of Colônia Imperial. The colony was named for Pedro de Alcântara of Orléans-Braganza (1875-1940), Prince of Grão-Pará, the son of Gaston, Count of Eu and Isabel, Princess Imperial of Brazil.
Incorporated to the district of Orleans, then part of Tubarão, in 1888, the colony was managed by the American engineer Charles Mitchell Smith Leslie.
