Passeio Publico, Fortaleza

4.1
Recently renovated, Passeio Publico is a public park located in the downtown area. The park’s official name is Praça dos Mártires, and you can drop by it for a quick lunch at one of its many food kiosks, noted for their outdoor seating, cheap meals, and cold drinks. This old park has been a popular meeting spot of area residents for nearly a century. Today families with small children come here to walk, bicycle, or enjoy live music from the shade of old trees. You can time your visit for the daily crafts fair, taking place in the early evening hours. Close to the main train station and the city’s central market, the park is a convenient stop for locals and visitors passing through.

    Around the Holy House and tourist Centre. Well wooded but when we passed the morning had many people sleeping on the benches, so don't choose to visit.

Where to stay in Fortaleza

If you want to focus on the historical attractions in Fortaleza, stay in the city center or a nearby neighborhood for easy access. Far more popular, however, is the coastal neighborhood of Praia de Iracema, where you can immerse yourself in the city's beach, restaurant, and nightlife scene. Any number of hotels line the neighborhood's expansive beachfront. For something a bit quieter, but still a stone's throw from the beach, look east to the coastal neighborhoods of De Lourdes and Praia do Futuro II. Thanks to the growing popularity of Fortaleza tourism, you can find a range of budget hostels throughout the city.
