Fortaleza Cathedral - Brazil

 Besides the 4 previous cards, Mauro also sent me a 5th card, the 1st of these night views of the Fortaleza's Cathedral. 
The 2nd card was sent back in 2011 by Paulo.

The construction of Fortaleza's Metropolitan Cathedral began in 1939 but it was close to four decades later when it was actually completed in 1978. 

The cathedral was designed by French architect George Mounier and built in Gothic-Roman style. With a capacity for 5,000 people, it's Brazil's third largest cathedral.
