Mucuripe Lighthouse, Fortaleza

(1/5 based on 70 reviews on the web)
One of the oldest buildings in Fortaleza, Mucuripe Lighthouse now houses the Museum of Fortaleza, a collection of representations of Fortaleza. Inside the handsome, octagonal tower you will find drawings, photographs, documents, illustrations, excerpts from novels, and stories of visitors. Unfortunately, the historic building has suffered a little from vandalism and neglect in recent years. A visit to Mucuripe Lighthouse represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Fortaleza tour planner to plot your vacation.

  • Dissapointing for such an historic landmark as it is almost deselect and unattended. It is also in a unsavoury neighbourhood and I only saw it from the bus. I wouldn't walk in this area.  more »
  • Visit Valley just for the historical value, as long as you go and don't go down or stay too long. The site is dangerous and the lighthouse, in ruins, are all tarred and Graffitti.

  • What should be a postcard, is abandoned. In my opinion should be revitalized, as well as the entire port and surrounding communities. The site is dangerous, isn't it environment for tourist.
