Juazeiro do Norte is also a major cultural center in Brazil, being one of the largest handicraft and cordel centers in the northeast of the country. The city also has one of the largest academic centers in the Northeastern interior and is affectionately called 'The metropolis of Cariri'.

Due to the figure of Padre Cícero, it is considered one of the three largest centers of popular religiosity in Brazil, along with Aparecida (SP) and Nova Trento (SC)

The Padre Cícero memorial recreates the history of Juazeiro by gathering photos, documents and historical objects. In the Memorial, there are cloths used to wipe the blood spilled in the supposed miracle of the host and the cannon taken in Sedição de Juazeiro.
