    The building of Estoril is located in Praia de Iracema and served as a casino for Americans during World War II. For over ten years, Estoril was declared as public assets by the city of Fortaleza. Interesting to know that the Estoril was built by Magellan's port and family was a real mansion in the early 40. Today, he is completely restored and, in addition to shelter some sectors of the Department of culture of Ceará, it exposes to the public some works of art in your interior.

    interesting to know and observe part of the culture. The region gets more hectic night. Many nightclubs and bars around.

    I went with some friends to the pre-carnaval do Estoril. Very crowded, with many stalls selling food and drinks. Loud music and good, good place to view the cultural diversity of Fortaleza.

    The restaurant had already been forgotten by the population of Fortaleza, the Secretary of Tourism of Fortress, a brilliant idea, as a settlement of the beach, the place is beautiful and safer.

    Usually has very adolescent and the well-known pirangueiros, however it is a historic and interesting place to stop by to see. Beware the location can be dangerous.

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.
