“Space for Art and Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2010

In down town, this area holds a very important cultural center of Fortaleza, a lot of art events of the community happens here. Planetarium, Theater, Movie rooms and exposition areas, are some of the art spaces available. It is very impressive how the culture in Fortaleza is enhanced.
Just for the record, the center is named after a “Jangadeiro” (person that rides the Jangada boat) also known as “Chico da Matilde” that on the 1880’s lead with other Jangadeiros the boycott of slave transportation from the ships to the shore.
But the things start boiling up at night where the surroundings bars and restaurants together with the cultural center merge into a happy space to enjoy the fun. Local food, Forró dance and happy people is all around.
Check their site for what is going on when you are in Fortaleza.
Worth going.
