Metropolitana Cathedral, Fortaleza

(2,600+ reviews on the web)
Church
Built to hold 5,000 people, Metropolitana Cathedral is the third largest cathedral in the Brazil. The magnificient interior features panelled and circular stained glass windows that spread colored light across the pews. You can see similar flying buttresses and arches in European cathedrals. This is no conincidence: the cathedral's architect was French. Don't let the exterior with its years of soot stains fool you; behind this blackened facade you will find majesty. Our Fortaleza tourist route planner makes visiting Metropolitana Cathedral and other Fortaleza attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Worth the visit to the Cathedral Church, as part of the postcard from Fortaleza, your harmonic architecture attracts several clicks to get through the front and visit the Church is open daily, is worth a visit, and besides is next to the central market, where you can buy souvenirs of the capital. Note: I'm a travel blogger and evaluate hotels, restaurants and cities where to step. @douglasviajante on instagram.

  • The Cathedral is beautiful and huge. Are 100 feet high from the vaults and 75 m of the towers. Municipal market side, facing the fortress of our Lady of Asuncion. Behind the fortress has the Promenade, which is nice in spite of a seemingly abandoned. Nearby there is also the Museum of Ceará and praça do Ferreira. You can do all this walking route.
