Natal - Rio Grande do Norte
With beautiful beaches, white sand dune areas and a rich and diverse culture.
Leisure and entertainment
Natal offers its visitors a unique leisure and entertainment experience!
The city was thus named (“Natal” meaning “Christmas” in Portuguese) because, on December 25, 1597 , Admiral Antônio da Costa Valente and his men entered the shoals of the Potengi River, after several failed attempts at colonization. The date became the birthday of the capital of Rio Grande do Norte. With the strengthening of its economy and tourism, the city started to present an excellent quality of life and has a great urban structure, standing out among the capitals of Northeast Brazil.
