"No Roads, No Vehicles" Itatinga by glabah

Itatinga Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 13 photos

Welcome to Itatinga

Itatinga is a community formed to serve a hydroelectric facility. There is no way to get to it by road. Rather, from the coastal community of Bertioga (northeast of Santos) it is necessary to cross a river by boat, and take a short railway line. The city has no evidence of vehicles, other than the trains.

This photo shows the last station on the railway line, facing the city.

Like Any Brasilian City

even little Itatinga has a Roman Catholic church.

The interior of the church is very clean and well maintained.

For more photos, please see the Travelogue I have for this city.

For more photos of the railway and its equipment, please see my Travelogue for this city.

Also, note that there is a Itatinga Section on the Brazilian Railway Photo Album web site.
