Ceará's cards - Brazil

Mauro sent me more cards a few days ago. Like the previous ones, these are also from the Ceará state.

The Dragão do Mar Center of Art And Culture is a government funded cultural center in Fortaleza, Ceará in Brazil. The center contains facilities for exhibitions, a theatre, a library, a cinema and a planetarium. The center was inaugurated in April 1999, and has an overall area of 33 000 m². The name "Dragão do Mar" is in honour of Chico da Matilde, a hero of the abolitionist movement in Ceará, who in 1881 refused to transport slaves to be sold further south in the country. - in: wikipedia

Lagoinha beach is 65 mile (104km) drive from Fotaleza.
This area is one of the largest and most popular attractions because it used to be the ancient hiding place for French pirates. Now, Lagoinha is a quiet colony of fisherman, set amongst paradise landscapes dotted with palm trees, beaches and colorful sand dunes!
 Lush with coconut palms and a small deep lagoon embedded in the red sand dunes, this beach is considered one of the best in the state. - in:
