Centro Dragão do Mar, Fortaleza, Brazil
Erected in an old port area, the space was opened at the end of the 90s, bringing freshness and move to the area of Iracema Beach. Over the years, its career has been consolidated in the cultural, varied and consistent programming in general free or symbolic value tickets. There are 14 500 square meters, which houses, among other attractions, two museums, theater and amphitheater for plays and shows, cinema, library, art gallery and planetarium. Deserves special attention the Green Square: on Sundays from 16h to 19h, the place is taken by children playing hopscotch and catch-up, make paint shops and even making toys such as kite and hula hoop. The open space with capacity for 4000 people have received large shows, as Alceu Valenca and Adriana Calcanhotto.
A basic script can start at the Museum of Cearense Culture, where the permanent exhibition tells the story of Cowboys sertanejos workers take to the Contemporary Art and finish in Visual Arts Library Leonilson. At this point, those who want to rest your legs can turn to a movie. The two rooms, held in partnership with the Joaquim Nabuco Foundation, are comfortable and have modern digital transmission of audio and video systems. The program runs from the commonplace and includes special events, such as the Varilux show of French Cinema. Before the session gives to take a break at the Café Santa Clara Organic, for an espresso with cheese bread (1 eur each). The suggestion, however, is to keep a little bit of thirst and appetite for later. At night, when the bars that surround the Sea Dragon leave the pavement with a festive atmosphere, the pleasant climate favors the combined beer and snack in the open.
