Outdoor Activity
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. Make Acude Cedro part of your personalized Quixada itinerary using our Quixada tour planner.

  • We visited today the Weir of cedar. Tourist place of the city of Quixadá, pretty much, but still small infrastructure. Anyway, it is worth knowing the location.

  • The Cedar dam with the view of the broody hen is very beautiful, the problem is that the environment is badly insulated.

  • The location is beautiful, has a great view just that your structure is too weak as tourist place in the city of Quixadá. Worth a visit, just to meet and stay a maximum of 30 minutes. The place has good food, but very poorly structured. Lack of investment in the local prefecture, lack structure to receive visitors, found it too dropped to a busy place like this.

  • 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
