A scenic city situated on the northeast of Brazil, Fortaleza was once a sleepy fishing port but has grown into a popular destination as it boasts sixteen miles of powdery white beaches, making it the ultimate retreat. As you sail into port you will be greeted by stunning coves and an impressive skyline. Although the gorgeous beaches are a top attraction in Fortaleza, the city itself is a treasure trove of fascinating sights to visit. There's the ‘Jose de Alencar Theatre' a fine example of Art Noveau design and ‘Forteleza Cathedral', a neo-gothic cathedral with stunning stained glass windows.
Whilst you're in Fortaleza check out 'Central Market'. As well as selling tropical fruits, the market also has fine crafts and exquisite lace on offer. You'll find handicraft shops all around the city, popular places to go include ‘Mercado Central'. You'll discover a large number of stalls and shops here.
The local currency in Fortaleza is the Brazilian real (BRL). Fortaleza is 4 hours behind Greenwich meantime (GMT -4).
