Begin your tour in the morning from the hotels of Ponte Negra and visit the Via Costeira. Passing through the urban beach district, we’ll visit The Reis Magos Fort (The Three Kings Fort). Finalized in 1614, this fortress was built to protect against French colonial interests in the region. The star shaped military fortification has a perimeter of 250m with five canon positions, allowing defenders to fire from at least two positions at once if an enemy attacks from a single direction.
Continuing onward, we cross the neighborhoods of Santos Reis, Rocas and Ribeira, areas where Natal began its growth, to the city centre and the cathedral of Natal. Next, we’ll visit an arts and crafts centre where you’ll have enough time to browse the handicrafts and pick up any items you like. Then we’ll travel upwards to enjoy the panoramic view from the Morro do Careca (the bald hill). This view stretches from the outskirts of Natal, all the way across to Pirangi beach, some 24km away. We’ll also get to see the largest Caju tree in the world and take a swim in the calm waters of this beach before returning.
