  • Worth knowing the Church and the square. Is right in the Centre of Itu near the Museum. There's a gazebo to take photo's pay phone to take a picture. There are some shops around the square to buy souvenirs.

  • Second year when visiting the city of Itu, the square Array this prepared for the traditional Festa Italiana, a very beautiful event with church volunteers, typical dishes, live music and inviting prices. The square itself is very tasty, if you can save pictures of the super phone booth, or the giant light, sit down and talk in banks or admire the local architecture and the cross, in the case of the Church. But the events that the square receives, as this party, are a touch. The Security Office of the metropolitan police, litter-bins in order to preserve the hygiene of the place, are even congratulations.

  • The town has many churches of historical, architectural and religious, but that deserves highlight by the grandeur and beauty. In the Centre of Itu, be sure to admire the whole beauty and grandeur of this church.
