Metropolitana Cathedral, Fortaleza

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.

  • The cadetral of Fortaleza calls attention by your magnificence on the stage. With its stained-glass Windows and Gothic architecture stands out on Cathedral square in the face of so much movement that surrounds it.
