The city of Redencao (or 'Redemption') stands in the State of Ceará, in the northeast of Brazil. It's not to be confused with Redencao in the State of Para or the suburb of the city of Sao Paulo with the same name. Redencao of Ceara stands inland, amid mountains and sugarcane plantations. If you hire a car in Redencao you can take a trip to Sitio Livramento, a plantation museum showing how black slaves lived and worked. Further afield, the seaside town of Fortaleza is only 4 miles north and makes a good day trip, with its colonial Portuguese architecture, museums and beaches.
This city was the first in Brazil to free its slaves; hence its name. If you hire a car in Redencao you'll soon find that it has become a tourist destination. The visitor highlights include three grand main squares, two impressive museums and its amazing natural location. The Mountain of Saint Rita can be reached right from the city and gives a breath-taking view over Redencao and its surroundings. Look also for the beautiful Acarape do Meio Lake in the hills. Everywhere there are monuments and exhibitions telling the story of how the slaves were freed in 1883, five years before the rest of the country.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
