    Mãe Luiza’s Lighthouse

    by Alless Written Mar 5, 2008

    Don't forget to stop by it.Located at Areia Preta Beach, was inaugurated in 1951.From the top of its 151 steps, 37m (121 ft)high monument has a panoramic view that reaches as far as 70km of the nice Potiguar Capital.
    Mãe Luíza (Mother Louise) was a "parteira" who lived in Natal in the early 1900s; in the poor areas of Brazil, "parteira" is the woman who help other women give birth. Mãe Luíza gained recognition for her work, and the District of Natal where she used to live was given her name; later on, when the lighthouse was built in the District, it became known, first informally, later officially, as Farol da Mãe Luíza.
    Before this lighthouse was built, Natal had a beacon which stood on the wider wall of the Fortress of the Wise Kings; the beacon was a guide both for ships and for the aquaplanes which arrived in Natal via the waters of River Potengi. After World War II was over (Natal had an important role in the World War II), there were no more aquaplanes, and the beacon was substituted by the lighthouse, built in a more proper place; there is a landmark on the Fortress, showing the original location of the beacon.
    The lighthouse is operated by the Brazilian Navy. Open for visitations Sunday afternoons.

    Maracajau Parrachos - If you are a surfer or a diver, here is your place on the North Coast. The open sea provide the waves and the cleanliness of the water is amazing.

    The Litoral Sul of Rio Grande with Pirangi, Buzios (kitesurfing), barra de tabatinga and Nisia Floresta where I ate excellent shrimp in the old trainstation transformed into a beautiful restaurant.

    Beach Games - Football

    This is Brazil. So, where ever you go, you can play football. What ever the circumstances are. In this place (beach) the field was smooth, wet and sloping, but the best for these guys.

    Beach Games - Parachuting

    Take a tour to air. Beach buggy pulls you to air (it will not be possible after some years. Now the beach is not so occupied that you can use buggys. They probably need to change to boats).
