The present study has as coverage space the urban area of Dona Francisca city. To understand this geographic area it was required from us to know the relationship that this city has with other rural and urban relations/regional this space effects with other cities in the region of Quarta Colônia - these areas can t be explained separately. With the literature research focused on theoretical frameworks that offered us conceptual support to develop the theme, we opted for the sociospatial formation category defined by Milton Santos. We used the action research, the participatory action research and the participant observation, besides questionnaires application and cartographic analysis. The research led us to realize that the spatial relations are made among environments characteristically different, but it s visible the continuity and the influences that an environment perform over the other. As much as the globalization is willing to mix all these environments. In small towns like Dona Francisca and other cities in the region, these differences between urban and rural areas are still apparent. Relations between town and country, and between the urban that Dona Francisca develops are relations social-spatial and are present in such areas as economic, political, social, environmental, and especially the cultural. Socio-spatial relations referred, identify themselves and develop naturally, as are also endorsed through the application of regional public policies. Is in this context of socio-spatial relations that the city of Dona Francisca and the Region of Quarta Colônia where are located, and were objects of our study.
