Padim Cico Statue, Juazeiro do Norte

#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.

    The climate, the environment, the history, the religion and the spirituality of the place make it unique. It's not fair to compare with qq monument of the kind. Father Cicero is figure beloved by the people of Brazil and has your history rooted in the life of every one that there live. Well worth checking out everything closely and take a moment to thank God for the blessings and ask Padim Ciço their thanks.

Where to stay in Juazeiro do Norte

You'll find the greatest density of accommodations towards the northern end of Avenida Padre Cicero, with stand-alone hotels offering simple rooms, and smaller bed and breakfasts blending in with the squat commercial and residential buildings of the side streets. Head south from the city's main junction, along Avenida Leao Sampaio, and you'll see larger resort-style hotels making use of the space in this less densely populated area, as well as budget motels providing good options for those wanting easy car access to Sertao.
