Padim Cico Statue, Juazeiro do Norte

(4.3/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Very interesting place to visit. Access is quiet for now has a new, you just have to be careful when climbing. The view is amazing!

  • The monument to father Cicero is an icon of the faith of the people of northeastern Brazil/Brazilian. The Godfather of all Catholics northeasterners, which do not lose faith in Christ Jesus, who came to the most simple and humble. The fun of having an image, representing the grandeur of a Saint who lived with us and taught us the way to God. Viva padin Ciço faddah!

  • Amazing how faith and religiosity are in place. Contagious. Beautiful place, with vista. Shops for shopping of souvenirs and religious items. Tour not to be missed!
