  • The capital city of the State...

    by Manoel_Dias Written Aug 24, 2002

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The capital city of the State of Rio Grande do Norte, Natal has roughly 400,000 inhabitants. It started from a fortress built by the Portuguese in 1598 to fight the French invaders (and remained relatively small until the World War II, when the Allied Forces, recognizing its strategic location on the eastern bulge of Brazil, decided to turn the sleepy city into the Allied military base for their operations in North Africa. Natal is known for its endless beaches, being the most famous, 30 km north of the city. Golden sand dunes, palm trees and dune buggies make this beach a must.

    Favorite thing: You go to Natal a lot for the sun and the very good beaches. It is quite a lot of wawes in the sea, so if you go here with small children be careful with them because the wawes are strong!
