  • It's nice to spend some time but also a bit dangerous
  • Nice place to visit something cultural in the Fortaleza area. The bars and the shops nearby are a good place to meet friends and have a drink and some nice souvenirs. In the night the atmosphere is really relaxed and friendly. A nice spot to visit
