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

We have been there to see the monument and an exhibition about Brazilian toys. No explanations in English... I think it would have not been a difference, if I haven't gone there.

This attraction in Fortaleza was shut everytime we visited it during the day. There didn't appear to be very much there, which is a pity. I have heard the restaurants and bars nearby are good in the evening. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it - there are better places to spend your time.

An interesting cultural center located behind the Iracema beach and close to the downtown area. Unfortunately there is very little cultural events going on. The Café Santa Clara, with an organic coffee and many little bars surrounding the area is a good stop for a snack, specially at night, if you want lo listen good music.
