    The cultural centre houses, in addition to the House where the writer was born, an art gallery and other collections. The guides are excellent and friendly; explain everything about the place and the works. Has a restaurant with typical food there. Worth to book a couple of hours to learn more about José de Alencar.

    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.

    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.
