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.

  • Worth going to the square in the evening, eat a cake in the traditional South Lion or a delicious apple pie that assembles around 4:00 pm and humiliates the baianos in quality.

  • Situated right in the heart of downtown Fortaleza, praça do ferreira became a tourist spot. End of the same year always has a Christmas tree made with regional networks or any product. Outside the heart of children, which by the way is very beautiful!

  • The square has a central clock, the column of very old time. To your surroundings you can find several old buildings, and is nice to visit the pharmacy oswaldo cruz and snack on the city's oldest pastry, the lion of the South, the best pastry with sugar cane juice in the city.
