With over 9 million inhabitants, Ceará is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the
country. The state is known as "Land of Light" for having abolished slavery before the country of
Brazil and, turistically, for the brightness of the sun and by its daily stunning sea.
With its capacity for delighting people of all ages, the capital of Ceará, Fortaleza, is the
country’s fifth biggest city by population, with about 2.6 million inhabitants, and has much of what
the Brazilian enjoys: natural beauty, culture, music, plenty of fun and a wonderful culinary
tradition. Whether it is to catch some sun rays during the day or walk at night, the coastline is
one of the highlights of the capital.
The urban fringe of 34 km includes the beaches of Iracema, Meireles, Mucuripe and Futuro. Visiting
the Beach Park, one of Brazil's most famous water parks, is also an ideal program that pleases even
those who are not thrill seekers.
And in business, Fortaleza also stands out. in 2014 it was considered the eighth richest city in the
country, in terms of GNP, and the richest in the Northeast. It is also the third richest
metropolitan region in the North and Northeast. In tourism, the city has become the second most
desirable city in Brazil and the fourth biggest tourist destination city, according to the Tourism
Ministry. It is the closest Brazilian capital to Europe, 5608 km from Lisbon, and Portugal.
Emerald-colored sea bathed beaches, a bustling waterfront, opportunities for buying handicrafts,
eating fresh shrimp and crabs, plenty of laughter at the comedy shows and the opportunity to dance
the “forrozinho” step... Fortaleza is all this and much more.
