Ponte dos Ingleses
The English Bridge, popularly known as the Metal Bridge, has a long history of fascination on the population of Fortaleza and about their visitors.
Its construction began in December 1902 and lasted for four long years, rising to serve until 1940, the viaduct of embarkation and disembarkation of passengers and cargo in Fortaleza. This means that she played the important role of sea port to build the port Mucuripe in the early '40s.
With its deactivation, the giant metallic bridge and took another great and important vocation: she passed since then, become the favorite meeting place for young people, artists and bohemians who converged there to contemplate for the sun city more beautiful, to date, to fish uncompromisingly with the outcome of the fishery, to stimulate your poetic sensibility or simply to enjoy your tasty comfort. In this playful and conniving democratic space there is always room for everyone.
