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.

  • Location of the most important in the history of the fortress. Today, with a mini-restaurante/coffee, with instrumental music, live, mainly on Saturdays and Sundays. But the proposed promenade is far from being achieved. Beginning with the control of the restaurant, managed by the same people for years, in public space, granted by the municipal power. The price of the meals is incompatible with most of the locals, resulting in a ' selection ' of customers-goers. For a long time, the square has the support of Municipal Guard for security reinforcement. The lack of maintenance of various equipments. The feeling of insecurity increases, lack of assistance, including, street people. Buildings erected over the decades, preventing the good sea views. It's not a place to sit on the benches and enjoy the weather, small talk, no worries. Can improve and, being public, depends heavily on the goodwill of the public administration for that.

  • The square of the promenade is well ventilated and offers pretty decent and tasty lunch. She is the center of Fortaleza.

  • Promenade that does justice to your function. Without maintenance, fountain being used bara bath, copies of vegetation without due emphasis. Perfect location, but don't invite walking. Pity.

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.
