Fortaleza, Brazil Cruise Port

Brazil's northern coast is home to Fortaleza, originally founded as a fortress during the area's history as a Dutch colony. Since then the city has become the fifth largest in the country, home to strikingly beautiful beaches and some incredible landmarks, new and old. Alongside the wealth of culture visitors will also find a thoroughly modern beach resort city along the front, creating a destination where old and new meet in spectacular style.

Sightseeing in Fortaleza

Visitors to the city will find a great choice of attractions during their time here, and there's a wealth of history and culture to be discovered here that goes beyond beaches and the carnival spirit. Alongside Fortaleza's museums and the picturesque English Bridge, sightseers can find some remarkable landmarks:

Fortaleza Cathedral

Brazil's third-largest cathedral is marked by the clean, solid lines of the Roman Gothic style, and makes a perfect place of peace to get away from the busy city centre. Step inside and you'll find yourself in a pristine white space, with a broad, simple altar and a modest wooden crucifix at its heart. Look up though, and you'll see a remarkable selection of stained glass windows, illuminated by the bright Brazilian sunlight. This massive structure seats some five thousand worshippers, but is an equally popular attraction with tourists, since it lies close to the beach and the craft market.

Jose de Alencar Theatre

Feast your eyes on the ornate railed balconies and bright blue glass roof of the Theatro Jose de Alencar, a combination of Victorian and Art Nouveau architecture lying close to Fortaleza's sea front. Take a look inside and you'll find row upon row of wicker seats, and rising above them a magnificent frieze ceiling in gold and white.  For all the theatre's old beauty, its most remarkable quality lies in its construction – originally designed and built in Britain in the 19th century, and then transported by ship to Fortaleza in pieces for construction.

Centro Cultural Dragao do Mar

While the Jose de Alencar Theatre harks back to the golden age of traditional theatre at the turn of the last century, the Dragao do Mar Centre is the perfect place to see Fortaleza's modern performing arts. Marked by the distinctive crystalline dome of its planetarium, the centre is devoted to the production and gathering together of local art and music – combining a public library, cultural memorial, contemporary art museum, garden and the planetarium into one white-walled complex – the perfect stop on your sightseeing trip of this remarkable destination.

Shopping in Fortaleza

This modern city makes the perfect destination for a shopping trip, and boasts a great range of fashion stores and stalls selling locally-made handicrafts. Avid readers will find a number of good bookshops in the city, with many titles in English; there are also numerous department stores if your priorities are more along the lines of fragrance, jewellery or electronics during your time here.

Eating Out in Fortaleza

Such a popular destination boasts a great choice when it comes to find dining. Enjoy fresh crab, lobster, squid or shrimp caught fresh in the surrounding seas; alternatively, sit down to a dish of fried beef served with farofa, rice and beans – and a wide range of bars and cafes to enjoy a drink in the sun.
