(650+ reviews on the web)
Monument
Padim Cico Statue attracts hundreds of thousands of followers of Padre Cícero, a preacher and prominent community leader who died in 1934. Posthumously canonized by the Brazilian Catholic Apostolic Church, the priest was venerated by local believers as a saint even during his life. His role in the emancipation and the development of his beloved city was so great that he has become its most recognizable symbol. Locals proudly assert that this is "The Land of Padre Cícero." The 25-meter (82-foot) statue is located in the Horto Garden, from which you can enjoy a panoramic view of the entire region. Nearby is a museum dedicated to the preacher’s life and work, with exhibitions and literature about the area’s history and cultural heritage.

  • The garden with the statue of Padre Cícero stands on the outskirts of Juazeiro do norte and has an incredible view of the city. Perfect place for pictures. Has a permanent market. souvenir shops and ice cream. Avoid photographers who will harass him or else combine well the amount of pictures, and the value of each. Anyway, the pictures are great and are a good reminder. Don't forget to take three laps around the staff of statue.

  • The oena Valley to meet not only the statue, but for the beautiful visual of all the Juazeiro. The statue is well cared for and has lighting.

  • Go to Juazeiro do Norte and not knowing the garden is a waste. Location with beautiful view of the city, as well as the religiousness present impresses.
