Catedral Metropolitana de Natal, Natal

4.4
#2 of 17 in Historic Sites in State of Rio Grande do Norte
With its modern construction and conical shape, Catedral Metropolitana de Natal is not your typical church experience. Located in the Cicade Alta district, this church is dedicated to Our Lady of the Presentation, patron saint of the city. Walk inside its cool walls on a hot day, and take a moment to admire its stained-glass windows, large crosses, and three bells. Locally known as the New Cathedral, the church was inaugurated in 1988. Large, airy, with almost no sacred images, it is an architectural achievement well worth a quick stop. Pope John Paul II stopped by in 1991. You can buy souvenirs and snacks in the basement if you’re just passing through, or choose to stay for daily mass. The cathedral is open for visitors every day of week. Our Natal trip app makes visiting Catedral Metropolitana de Natal and other Natal attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The Metropolitan Cathedral is easily found. It is a structure of grace and tranquility. It is reserved and free from the garish that is often found in Norther Brazil.  more »
  • This non-Metropolitan Cathedral is located on Avenida Floriano Cavalcante, lies in the square André de Albuquerque. Site of the founding of the city of Natal. It is a magical place for visitors and Catholics who want to do prayers and requests. It's worth checking out.

  • Very nice and modern and bold construction. It has a bright and pleasant environment. So we can absorb the local atmosphere which leads to watching. The design of the bells and crosses make a difference in this modern church.

Where to stay in Natal

Looking to enjoy the best beaches and soak up the holiday atmosphere, most visitors eschew the city center when it comes to accommodations in Natal. Instead, many look to the southern beachside neighborhood of Ponta Negra, which brims with tourist resorts and the accompanying bars, restaurants, and cafes. If you want to escape the tourist route and experience the city itself, you'll find plenty of options along the beachside boulevard of Av. Presidente Cafe Filho--a stone's throw from the beach and the city center. For something much quieter, surrounded by rolling dunes and clear waters, stay on the seafront next to Parque das Dunas.
