  • The Museum of paleontology of Santana do Cariri surprises for the Organization and wealth of the acquis. Admission is free. Is in the city center. We were greeted by a young man who gave us all the explanations for the fossils found in the region of Brazil. There is a huge range of fossil plants, insects, fish, but rocks and petrified skeletons of various species of dinosaurs, which are proven to have lived in this region.

  • Boa pedida para um passeio diferente. Lá você encontra muita coisa interessante a respeito da nossa região. Os fósseis são lindíssimos e os guias (crianças da região treinadas pela Urca) explicam tudo muito bem.
  • Acervo de valor inestimável!!! Entrada franca. O museu em si é simples, mas conta com guia que te acompanhar para tirar dúvidas. Vale a visita!
