Praca do Ferreira, Fortaleza

(500+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area Tourist Spot
Praca do Ferreira has undergone much change in its lifetime, but it has long been considered "Coração da Cidade" (The Heart of the City). Today this bustling square is presided over by a tall clock known as the "Coluna da Hora," or Pillar of Time. Enjoy the cooling spray from the fountains around the clock's base, or sit in the shade of a tree and watch as shoppers, city workers and the occasional street performer pass you by. Put Praca do Ferreira and other Fortaleza attractions into our Fortaleza trip itinerary builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Beautiful place, right in the Centre of Fortaleza. Close to several shops, great movement of people. Too bad it's taken by residents of streets, which unfortunately live in a difficult situation.

  • Ferreira square is the commercial heart of Fortaleza. Close to everything, has many cheap clothing stores and restaurants. It's worth taking a walk around if you want to know the true urban Fortress. 10 minutes by Taxi from Iracema beach. Until the 18 is pretty sure the place.
