Nossa Senhora do Patrocinio Church, Itu

(4.4/5 based on 55 reviews on the web)
The resting place of Mother Mary Theodora Meylan, one of the most important figures in Brazilian Catholicism, lies at Nossa Senhora do Patrocinio Church. Born in in Chambéry, France in 1835, Mother Theodore became head of the church in 1859, 40 years after its founding. She opened the first girls' Catholic school in São Paulo Province upon her arrival, providing free education to daughters of the poor and slaves. Mother Theodora's good deeds earned her candidacy for beatification—the Pope's granting of sainthood—in Rome. With its dual spires and many detailed columns, you'll find Nossa Senhora do Patrocinio Church to be as pleasing from an architectural standpoint as it is from a historical one.

  • The churches of Itu impressed me because I didn't have any expectation of finding something. It's not like walking into black gold, but the interior of the Church is very beautiful and worth the visit.

  • in the afternoon 5:00 we arrived .but it is closed
  • muito linda
  • Passou por uma restauração na faxada em 2016, mas ainda permanece com um cheiro forte de mofo. Vale a pena o passeio pra quem gosta de lugares meio dark.
  • Ela é bonita, mas está um pouco "mofada"
