Mercado dos Pinhoes, Fortaleza

4.0
#4 of 10 in Historic Sites in Fortaleza
Mercado dos Pinhoes is a handcraft and art center of old steel construction made in France in 1896. It has been moved around Fortaleza and finally parked in its current location. At night, its stained glass windows come to life. The site sells a bit of everything so it’s a great place to make purchases at great prices. Nearly every night, there is some sort of event taking place. It’s perfect for those who enjoy chorinho, an instrumental Brazilian popular music genre, which originated in 19th century.

  • A metallic shed with beautiful stained glass Windows and trade stalls, usually bringing together cultural activities on weekends. Worth a quick visit, if you are around.

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.
