Immense and geographically diverse Brazil is a tough tourist nut to crack. While Rio de Janeiro garners the lion's share of attention and the capital of São Paulo is generally considered to be a major world city, other destinations get lost in the shadows. From colonial towns to the exotic and wild Amazon interior however, Brazil is an abundant and endless source of tourist delights. One notable gem in the country's impressive arsenal is the city of Fortaleza.
Home to more than 3 million people, the city is big and full of charm, regional culture and traditional flair. A location on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean provides Fortaleza with a climate to envy. Temperatures hover around the 30°C mark throughout most of the year. With wonderful markets and restaurants to explore, worthwhile attractions include the Dragão do Mar Center of Art and Culture, Fortaleza Cathedral and the Forte de Nossa Senhora da Assunção.
