The St. Joseph's Cathedral also called Metropolitan Cathedral of St. Joseph is a Catholic church, home of the Archdiocese of Fortaleza, located in Fortaleza in Brazil. The present church was built on the site of the old church.
It took to complete the work forty years beginning in 1938 and was inaugurated in 1978. It can accommodate five thousand people and its towers reach 75 meters high. French architect George Maunier signed the draft eclectic style with a predominance of neo-Gothic, with references to the Cologne Cathedral in Germany and very similar to the Chartres Cathedral in France. Sao Jose is the Saint linked to the cathedral which is also known as the Metropolitan Cathedral of Fortaleza.
