Itu - At first, when it was called Utu-Guaçu, which means big waterfall, was due to a waterfall that is located today in the city of Salto. With a huge potential for tourism, thanks to its invaluable historical, cultural, religious, environmental and architectural heritage, Itu is also known as the "land of exaggeration" because of the late comedian from Itu, Francisco Flaviano de Almeida, or Simplício. Today the city has a mixed profile, combining tourism, trade, services and industries. In 2010, it celebrated 400 years. Itu was once the richest city in the state of São Paulo, it is famous for having hosted many coffee barons and senior officials in the country.
