  • It is interesting to visit the House in which José de Alencar lived! You wonder what it was like to live in the time he lived there. The site has a wide access and I advise to visit him on Sunday, because it is more busy and excited! Very good to take the children.

  • The atmosphere is excellent. Has regional live music of good quality, spacious and very nice. However, the food is not good. The buffet costs R$55,90 a kilo, which is unjustifiable given the quality of the food, which has absolutely like nothing. Recommended to walk. Do not recommend to eat.

  • Amazing place to relax and to be in touch with nature. It has also a Brazilian Restaurant called Restaurante Iracema. Very good food there. At Saturdays, live music with Brazilian rithym Chorinho.
  • This is the house of Brazilian great writer in the 1880´s
  • Green space great for a picnic. Ample parking. House where lived the cearense writer José de Alencar. It has ruins of an old sugar cane mill. Self service restaurant with live music on the weekends (Saturday's samba). Museum. Cultural projects of extension of the Federal University of Ceará. The headquarters of the Scout group Santos Dumont.

  • The House, the Museum and the space is pretty cool, but the restaurant is pretty weak. By 56 reais a kilo, the options are very few and I've tasted, they were all just "ok", nothing that justifies the price. The service is pretty bad too. Is a card per table, not one per customer.

  • Environment nature, very open and green space. There was a guide when I went, so I had to look up the historical facts alone reading the platelets (which I find particularly annoying).

Where to stay in Fortaleza

If you want to focus on the historical attractions in Fortaleza, stay in the city center or a nearby neighborhood for easy access. Far more popular, however, is the coastal neighborhood of Praia de Iracema, where you can immerse yourself in the city's beach, restaurant, and nightlife scene. Any number of hotels line the neighborhood's expansive beachfront. For something a bit quieter, but still a stone's throw from the beach, look east to the coastal neighborhoods of De Lourdes and Praia do Futuro II. Thanks to the growing popularity of Fortaleza tourism, you can find a range of budget hostels throughout the city.
