  • Is a place for visitation and identification with the poetic and philosophical culture ... no place for parking. And identified with the local contingency. Unfortunately I don't like a place listed. But it is worth visiting, take pictures and enjoy ...

  • THE poet BAOBAB: Rua de São João 1522 (Lagoa Seca) is an amazing tree, both by its shape and size since it measures almost 20 meters high and 18 circumference of the trunk so it is the copy of largest baobab that exist in Brazil. It is assumed that it would be about 500 years old and that would have been introduced by African priests who accompanied the slaves. For many African tribes is a sacred and considered the King of all trees, tree so it must never be cut or mutilated. It is a national symbol of Madagascar and Senegal. This specimen was seen and loved since childhood by the local poet Diógenes of Cunha Lima and when the plot of 700 m2 is put up for sale bought to preserve the Baobab of the urban voracity that would end with him. In the ' 30s Cunha Lima was invited by the French piloto-escritor Antoine de Saint Exupéry and could be that he has inspired in this baobab for his drawings and text of the book the little Prince because, in addition to the tree, the landscape of dunes and cliffs referred to in e Book l, can be found in the State of Rio Grande do Norte

  • The Baobab of the poet is located close to the main commercial district of Natal/RN. Right there in the midst of the concrete and the rush of everyday life, unnoticed, a huge tree. The place needs more care to receive visitors. But to observe this beautiful tree is very worthwhile.

  • Ok
  • Picturesque Christmas place. One of the largest baobace in the country, this tree is located near the fire department and a funeral home. The land would be sold and the tree would be knocked down, but the history professor known as Coquinho, who is also an immortal northeriograndense, bought the land and preserved this historic landmark.

  • Historic tree in the middle of the city, with potential space to make a square and cultural events, but unfortunately it is a forgotten and careless place by the city Hall.
