Fortaleza Airport

Airport Car Rental

The capital of Ceará, over the last decade Fortaleza has transformed from being a primarily domestic tourism destination to also being known to foreign visitors. In addition to its splendid coast, the city also offers interesting lessons in the culture of Northeast Brazil and its inhabitants. These are three of Fortaleza’s most interesting attractions:

  • Metropolitan Cathedral of Fortaleza. Known as Igreja da Sé in Portuguese, the main cathedral of Fortaleza is quite an imposing building - and one of the most famous in the city. Built to resemble the famous Cologne Cathedral in Germany, its two towers reach the height of 75 meters (245 feet). 
  • Dragão do Mar Cultural Center. Located in the busiest part of the city, this is one of the most notable cultural institutions of Fortaleza. A complex of attractions, it includes an art museum, a cinema, and even a planetarium. The center is named in honor of a famous Brazilian abolitionist.
  • Beaches. Perhaps unusually for a metropolis of more than four million inhabitants (although entirely fitting in Brazil), Fortaleza is home to several splendid beaches. Two of the nicest ones are Iracema Beach and Meireles Beach - these are located next to each other, immediately to the northeast of the city center. There are many other lovely and less busy beach spots around Fortaleza that you can reach with a rental car, though make sure to consult locals before heading out to them to make sure you end up in a nice place.
