The whole "Dragão do Mar" complex is incredible. Lots of great restaurants, art and music. The perfect place if you're looking for culture. The only downside is the security outside... Besides that, a lovely place with a great vibe.

The place serves as a cultural center for the City, with a Planetarium, Cinemas, Theaters, and two museums. During the day you can visit the exhibits, but at night you have a lot going on at the restaurants and bars around. The place is a bit run down, neglected by the administrations, but still a nice place to visit when... More

Even though Dragão do Mar's new architecture there's nothing to do with what it was Praia de Iracema before I still think this place is a great option for people in general. This is what I like more about it, it's a democratic place! A lot of nice free exhibitions, good art movies,plays and concerts going on, a great and... More

Just off shopping street Rua Monsenhor Tabosa, is one of the most recognised national venues in Fortaleza and a must do while in the city. If you can spare a few hours (we couldn’t give it the time it deserves) there is a combination of art and culture accessible in a fairly compact area. Keys sights include the Cearense Ceara... More

You will learn a lot about Ceará and the history of their people, religion, traditions and even toys. It is a very nice place to visit.

It seems to be a rich place for local culture and I didn´t see much in English... might be boring for foreigns. If you´re around, take a short walk to the Municipal Market, they sell everyhting there from local food, handcraft and... More
