Quartel de Itu, Itu

Tourist Spot Military Facility
If you're interested in Brazilian military history, you should stop in at Quartel de Itu while you're in Itu. Home to the Quartel Duque de Caxias museum and an impressive collection of old photographs, the building served as a barracks for the Diodorus Regiment military unit starting in 1918. Before then, it housed about 400 students of the College of St. Louis. In the museum, you'll find numerous artifacts of early 20th-century Brazilian history, such as uniforms and weaponry. Jesuit priests orginally built Quartel de Itu in 1867, so the complex contains a church in addition to the musuem and barracks. For Quartel de Itu and beyond, use our Itu trip generator to get the most from your Itu vacation.

  • This barracks in addition to the military function itself also houses a small museum. Next there is a church at the time of the Jesuits, very friendly and Nice. The place doesn't look very inviting, but just ask the monitor (a soldier) that the entire building and your story become accessible to the public in good part. Worth the visit!

  • Before the rich families of Itu moving to Sao Paulo, lived in the city centre and placed their children in great religious schools as the Sao Luiz, who happened to be a barracks when students are gone

  • Occupying a large area near the central area of the city is this army headquarters, which also houses a Museum and a beautiful church. Example of discipline, organization and preservation of the historical heritage of Brazil.
