Padim Cico Statue, Juazeiro do Norte

4.3
#1 of 15 in Things to do in Juazeiro do Norte
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.

  • Go to the Garden is a must, emotion and history of devotion. I've been in the city out of the period of pilgrimage, but it was still memorable. The cityscape is privileged, local handicraft shops and contact with the culture. Even alone managed to make the photo more traditional place, that cuddle and Padim, as it has several photographers in place that make the picture ...
