How to get there

We are located in the proper heart of Fortaleza, where life pulses certainly the most, but we have the privilege to reside in an oasis, in an classic house, carefully reformed, located in a quite silent side road, free of pollution and traffic chaos, a peaceful spot, with natural ventilation, located in a safe area and very well connected to the public transportation system. Most of the touristic main attractions are within walking distance, so that you can discover the city in detail that oscillates from flashy modernism to easy-going traditionalism.

Take any bus to the Bus Terminal Parangaba. There you have to take the bus 077 Parangaba/Mucuripe. Remember, you won’t have to pay twice, just change the bus.
