Culture of Natal. Places to visit - old town, temples, theaters, museums and palaces

One of the distinctive features of Natal is its unique atmosphere of colonial times. The city has preserved many historic buildings belonging to different periods. The starting point of many sightseeing tours is the Fort of the Three Kings. This beautiful fortress was built in 1614. Despite the fact that it was built of quite common materials - sand, stone, and wood - the fort has managed to preserve its original appearance four hundred years after its foundation. However, the fortress has a kind of "longevity secret" - whale oil was used for its construction. Currently, part of the for is converted into the Museum of Vasco de Gama. The exposition dedicated to the world-famous explorer is very interesting and diverse.
Natal will not disappoint travelers who are used to spend every day of vacation in a new way. This destination is sure to please beach recreation fans, as they can diversify their stay on … Open
The most important cultural establishment of Natal is Ludovicus Camara Cascudo Museum (Museum da Camara Kasudo) dedicated to the life and culture of the Amazonian Indians. Its priceless exhibits include many tools of everyday life and ritual objects of the aborigines. The museum also displays a very interesting geological exposition. If you are a curious traveler, be sure to visit the Museum of Natural History and Anthology hidden within the walls of the Federal University. Since the study of the surrounding areas is ongoing, the collection of this museum is regularly replenished.
A quite unusual cultural institution is the Centre for Tourism and crafts occupying the old prison building. It operates an interesting art gallery, as well as several permanent exhibitions representing unique handmade products of wood, glass, and fabric. Visitors to the center are invited to appreciate the wealth of its exhibitions and buy some unique memorable souvenirs. Several times a week, music performances take place in the center.

Another remarkable symbol of the city is its old 37-meter-high lighthouse. At the top of the lighthouse, there is a wonderful observation deck that can be always reached. To do this, you have to overcome an impressive spiral staircase with more than 150 steps. The unique architectural style of Natal is formed by chic Victorian colonial buildings. The most spectacular one is the Governor's Palace, the construction of which was completed in 1873. Frequent theater-goers should definitely visit the main city theater, which is considered one of the best in the country not without good reason. Due to the unique building design, the theater offers no less unique acoustics.
Natal has a unique natural attraction, which can be called one of the most outstanding wonders of the world. We are talking about the world's largest cashew tree (Pirangi Cashew Tree) that was planted in 1888 by one of the local fishermen. Contrary to all the laws of nature, the tree keeps growing - for now, it is 70 times bigger than the average cashew tree. Given that this species cannot be called miniature (old trees can reach 12 meters in height), the natural phenomenon seems even more incredible. Today, the circumference of the tree is 500 meters.

A square church building is designed from forty high pointed arches. The glass of large high windows shimmer with shades of blue, and inside there is a cedar crucifix and a giant chandelier made of Murano glass.
