ENGLISH TOURS: As of Juy 12, 2018, no English tours were available. However, the place is still enjoyable even without an English speaking tour guide!
SAFETY: Robbery is not uncommon in this area of Fortaleza. It is best to be discreet with phones and money when in this area. Don’t wear the family jewels and you are good to go!
WHAT I THINK: I’d definitely recommend visiting the Ceara Museum (Museu do Ceara). It is a humble place, but it does give you a sense of the history and people here. I enjoyed seeing the Portuguese architecture of the museum itself and having a small peak into the past. The area around the museum is also cool, as it has a nice park to hang out in, a little bar on the corner, and plenty of folks selling snacks and street food around the place.
