  • The location though old, is well maintained. However, too tight, and the works of craft there offered, can be found easily in the market, Central Market and even the famous lace. The price to my view, is higher than in other places q mentioned above.

  • I visited the site the company contracted with City Tour Ernanitur, regretted because the tourist agency bus was parked at the entrance to a community with abandoned buildings where graffiti on the wall said "upon entering lower the lights, open the window and get the bike helmet, signed the crime". I'm not sure if the site offered the adequate security for the embarkation and disembarkation of passengers. Several people in addressing on the sidewalk, at the door of the bus and carried over the site. I was honestly very apprehensive. Outside the tourist Centre there were two guards doing security for the site. How to trade, the handicraft market Manohar pleased me more for service and products offered. Do not recommend.

  • It is an enclosed space, clean, organized and with many handmade products (single piece), for these reasons, the value is slightly higher than is found in the Central market.

  • The site is legal to buy, but on Saturdays it closes earlier than announced by Google here in Fortaleza-CE everything closes early on Saturdays in the Center.

  • Ideal place to find handicraft from Ceará. Shops aimed at tourists, but local clients can find great products here.

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.
