The city of Criciúma/SC consolidated its urban identity based on ethnicity during the celebrations of its Centenary. This identity transformation allowed the insertion of various ethnic groups into the identity of the city. Among them we can highlight the Arab ethnic group who granted their presence in the city through a festivity and the demarcation of an Arab Muslim territory whose mosque is the main element.
