Visitors to Fortaleza will delight in exploring the commercial, residential, beach and resort highlights of this colorful seaside city. Begin your tour with a scenic drive toward the historic Mucuripe Lighthouse. View the golden sands of the popular eastern beaches which extend far into the distance. Your motor coach will then pass through Fortaleza's residential area and head into the center of town. En route, your guide will point out the modern mausoleum, which is the last resting place of President Castelo Branco. This much-admired local son was Brazil's military president over 30 years ago. Continue with a stop at Praça Jose de Alencar, the city's premier square, located in the heart of the commercial district. Here, visit Teatro José de Alencar, a theater named after the native 19th-century novelist and poet. After traversing the central commercial area, visit the neo- Gothic Sé Cathedral, with its impressive stained-glass windows. You'll also glimpse the Dutch-built Assuncao Fortress, which is still in use as a military installation. Next, enjoy free time at the Emcetur Tourist Center; the city's flourishing handicraft market, which is housed within a former prison. In addition to displays of Fortaleza's famous lace, there are countless stalls displaying embroidered textiles, wood carvings, and basket ware and clay figurines. Continue along the coastal road to Fortaleza's residential district via the prominent English Bridge, where a brief photo-stop will be made. Enjoy picturesque views of Iracema Beach as you make your return journey to the ship.
