I am an architect and urban planner with master's degree in regional and urban planning. I have participated in several groups in defense of the historical patrimony, the environment and the urban mobility of the city. I was one of the leaders in the defense of the preservation of a town square. I have also been an alternate councilor of the Municipal Council of Historical and Cultural Heritage. Therefore, I really like my city, its natural and built heritage and the history of its formation and I like to share with the people who come to visit it.

Fizemos um tour privado com Thais, preferimos assim por causa da pandemia e porque fomos com uma menina de 2 anos e 9 meses, que é um desafio pra fazer um passeio assim. Thais foi otima! Mt etica, manteve a mascara e o distanciamento, muito paciente, muito simpatica, adaptou tudo ao passeio com uma crianca e foi muito receptiva e nos banhou de muita informaçao interessante. Recomendo muito, principalmente no inicio da viagem!

O trajeto escolhido é muito tranquilo para ser feito a pé no calor de Fortaleza. Tudo o que é apresentado pode ser visitado posteriormente, a assim o fizemos. Porém, sem o passeio, jamais conheceríamos os locais mais legais para se visitar e as histórias por trás de cada local. Claramente, José e Larissa estudaram bastante para transmitir o máximo de conhecimento. ótimo passeio e ótima dinâmica. Indico.
