Casa José de Alencar

Casa Jose de Alencar

Passing through the bustling Washington Soares Avenue, there is a green space that breathes tranquility and culture: we are talking about the José de Alencar House.

The Casa José de Alencar is located in Sítio Novo Alagadiço, in the neighborhood of Messejana, in Fortaleza and was acquired in 1825 by José de Alencar Martiniano, father of writer José de Alencar, the main character in our history.

For nine years, this area was the home of the writer, author of the most renowned titles in the National Literature, especially the works "Iracema" and "O Guarani", which were strongly influenced by the natural beauty of the state of Ceará.

In 1965, during the administration of president Antonio Martins Filho, the house was acquired by Federal University of Ceará which currently maintains the site. Strolling through the spaces, the visitor can learn about the writer's work, see the story told by the Iracema´s book images and learn more about slavery and african-Brazilian cults.

The visit is free. The Casa José de Alencar has six trained monitors, which are distributed in two rounds and track visitors, making explanations of the acquis and spaces. Presently, the Casa José de Alencar is part of the scenario of cultural tourism in Ceará, being a meeting point for friends, home search and natural heritage of the heart of the surveyor.
