  • The Institute is facing a square, the oldest, the architecture of the building is wonderful. In addition the site owning a large collection. It is also located on the side of the old cathedral.

  • Museum of history and geography of the State R.G. do NORTE: R da Conceizao 622 is located opposite the old cathedral and beside the Potengi Palace (Palacio de la Cultura). Among them is the Capitoline column, gift of Mussolini to the city of Natal. The building was constructed in 1906, neoclassical style typical of the Europe of the second half of the 19th century, with geometric design, columns, stairs and a monumental facade. It is one of the oldest institutions of the State and was created during the first Government of Alberto Albuquerque Maranhão who was concerned about the preservation of the historical and documentary heritage of the RG State do Norte. Colonial history, Imperial and Republican are represented in photos, newspapers and magazines that show life in Natal. (8 to 17 hours)

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.
