  • I loved this place, there are ATMs, food ... and a lot of quality products are sold ... and the prices are reasonable, for all budgets.

  • It is a picturesque place and full of options, but all can be found in the market.

  • Good location and quiet for purchases. Same things as on all sides but clean and safe. Be a former prison gives a special touch

  • Excelente lugar para passeio e compras, três andares de lojinhas onde você encontra os verdadeiros produtos artesanais do Ceará, mas tenha cuidado também tem muita coisa "importada" que parece ser renda, mas não é!!! Preços ótimos, mas nunca aceite a primeira proposta, precisa pechinchar, os vendedores colocam um valor muito alto e depois chegam no valor real das peças. Leve dinheiro, pois a maioria não aceita cartão, mas não se preocupe tem Caixa eletrônico 24 horas e do Banco do Brasil na entrada.
  • Portal O POVO - 03 ESFAQUEAMENTOS / ROUBOS DIÁRIOS EM TODA ORLA DA PRAIA DE FORTALEZA Um turista holandês, de 66 anos, foi esfaqueado durante uma suposta tentativa de assalto, na Praia de Iracema, na madrugada de ontem. O idoso teria sido abordado por dois homens no Aterro da Praia de Iracema e não entendeu que se trava de um assalto, já que não sabe falar português. A demora na reação teria sido interpretada como resistência e um dos assaltantes esfaqueou o turista, na região das costas. Foi a terceira agressão à faca na orla de Fortaleza em menos de 72 horas. Mesmo esfaqueado, o idoso teria conseguido ir ao encontro de policiais militares que patrulhavam o local. Os PMs tentaram perseguir os assaltantes, mas não obtiveram sucesso. Nenhum suspeito foi preso, até o fechamento desta página. O turista foi levado ao Instituto Doutor José Frota (IJF), mas já recebeu alta. De acordo com a Secretaria da Segurança Pública e Defesa Social (SSPDS), a titular da Delegacia de Proteção ao Turista (Deprotur), delegada Adriana Arruda, teria recebido informações sobre o caso, porém, o homem não chegou a registrar ocorrência. Policiais teriam ido ao apartamento do holandês para colher o seu depoimento, mas ele não quis atendê-los. No domingo, 17, um turista uruguaio foi esfaqueado durante uma tentativa de assalto no Espigão da Praia do Náutico e, no mesmo dia, um outro homem sofreu ação semelhante no Aterro da Praia de Iracema, em frente ao Ideal Clube.
  • Excelente . O artesanato é bastante diferente. A qualidade é de primeira. Tem estacionamento e seguro.
  • Ótimo
