#4 of 6 in Historic Sites in Natal
Named after a beloved local midwife, Mae Luiza lighthouse is situated on top of high sand dunes and can be seen from almost any point along the coastline of Natal. This lighthouse is 37 meters (121 ft) high and has a spiral staircase with 150 steps. Although operated by the Brazilian Navy and still officially in operation, you can visit it by ascending a trail from the popular Areia Preta beach. The top of this well-maintained landmark is 87 meters (285 ft) above sea level. From there you can see not only Areia Preta, but also Morro do Careca (the city’s tallest sand dune) and Forte dos Reis Magos, a 400-year-old fortress once used as a defense barrier against French pirates.

  • The Lighthouse of M.E. Luiza is a tower 37 meters high, in front of the Beach of the Artists. The lighthouse is easily accessible, by spiral stairs of 151 steps, once at the top you can get one of the most beautiful landscapes of Natal with a panoramic view that will allow you to see from the beaches of Genipabu to Ponta Negra. Highly recommended!!!

  • I called the 3rd Naval District, which is the one who responds to the site. You are not having visitation until the present date of 03/05/2019. It's a pity the Navy left a tourist spot like this on the side. You're the drug thieves today.
