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.

  • 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.

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