Aquiraz, a little city placed in the seashore of Ceará state and 27km far from Fortaleza, is known by the first historical capital of that state. This cozy city stands out by a large group of monuments and building where the presence of the Portuguese architectural elements merged with the typical “sertão” region – the arid countryside of the northeast.
In Aquiraz you will find some of the most rustic churches and monasteries, settled by the Jesuits in the 16th century, and also the buildings that had sheltered the Portuguese kingdom’s employees. The city remains as a living example that testifies the historical past of the region. Despite thatit looks forward into a future with lots of projects on golf and resorts to make good use of the beaches’ potential.
