Rome of Brazil

Witness to the beginnings of the republic, prosperous Itu features an odd claim to fame in its array of oversized objects and landmarks. Founded in 1610, Itu owes its origins to the "bandeirantes," groups of rough-riding explorers who fought their way bit by bit from the coastline into the jungles of interior Brazil during the colonial period. The discovery of natural resources transformed the area into a vital trading outpost, bringing wealth and development to the city. Today, sightseeing in Itu reveals plenty of impressive historical buildings, including a convent, a Baroque church, and several museums, along with a mishmash of architectural styles that serve as a timeline of the town's growth. A giant pay phone and stoplight represent just a few of the aforementioned larger-than-life attractions, a hallmark of the city's recent tourist appeal.

Where to stay

Much of Itu's accommodations lie in the city center, in the form of larger, upscale hotels that provide pools, fine dining, and plenty of the amenities you'd expect from well-known chains. While these tend to feature higher prices, they offer easy access to the attractions in the city center. Budget travelers should keep an eye out for smaller family-run guesthouses and hotels scattered around the historic core. To escape the bustle of the city center, consider staying in the surrounding countryside. Though you'll need some form of transportation to get to and fro, staying in the outskirts puts you close to some of the region's numerous plantation-style homes, many of which date back to the 18th century.
