Mucuripe Lighthouse, Fortaleza
(2.2/5 based on 65+ 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.

  • 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.

  • It is regrettable that a monument that was so cute today is completely abandoned. The location is also very dangerous and not worth visiting

  • The Lighthouse is an option in the city to make a photographic record, nothing more than that! Stay close to the beach and ends up being way to many other attractions of the city.
