#40 of 190 in Outdoors in State of Ceara
Built over a century ago, Acude Cedro offers several locations where you can swim, fish, or practice a variety of water sports. This large dam, a popular recreational spot for tourists and locals, also serves a large network of irrigation canals and is a major source of drinking water for the entire region. Pedra da Galinha Choca, ancient monoliths resembling the shape of a chicken (hence the local name, "The Stones of Hatching Chicken"), have become a major tourist attraction in recent years. You can spend a day picnicking in this exotic landscape of water and ancient rocks, or stop by a nearby restaurant serving roasted fish, considered a local delicacy.

  • The dam of Cedar is a historic site designed in the Imperial Government, to combat the drought. Easily accessible and with some very useful kiosks hydrate, because the temperature is high enough. I advise you do the visitation in the morning.

  • The dam of Cedar was one of the first major projects to combat drought by the Brazilian Government. The order of construction was given by d. Pedro II as a result of the great social impact caused by the drought of 1877-1879. The place has an incredible view, worth visiting.

  • The dam of Cedar is a magnificent building. Deserved to be further maintained. The access is done by car until half way, so we can get to it we have to do the rest of the way on foot. But the walk compensates by visual space gives. Deserved more space conservation and more attractions.

  • very beautiful place, but lacks lighting infrastructure both in the wall of the dam, as the course that besides being dimly lit, has no sidewalk and, if you choose to walk, you have to compete with motor vehicles
