  • Strengths: interesting site for shopping. The products are of quality and value accessible. Many options, has a bit of everything. Clothing, bed, bath & beyond. Find a Lord attire as Lampião, my son loved. Negatives: the building was an old jail and is abandoned, in my opinion, could be better care. The two bathrooms of the site, at the end of the corridor, were filthy, no water to wash your hands and for flushing. Impossible to use.

  • I went for the second time, the cashew nut that is marketed there is high quality, I love crafts they sell.

  • This Center took a former presidio disabled to become a surfing Internet market that my wife considers impérdivel in Fortaleza. Who is in the Cathedral and the Municipal market can go walking in this market. For we husbands have a nice space between the sheds with trees and benches to wait with patience.

  • 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.
