Metropolitana Cathedral, Fortaleza
(4.1/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Church of towering towers. Large internal space, in the archaic style, beautiful. During a morning visit, is close to the central market. Give it to walk.

  • The Church is beautiful. Nominate a few pictures, and of course a prayer. Inside is a spectacle. It is worth visiting.
