Highlights of Natal
Natal is the capital of the state of Rio Grande do Norte. Located in the north eastern part of Brazil, it is the country’s 19th largest city. Indeed its population is approximately 900,000 people. Being a coastal city, the beach is is its main attraction.
With The Greater Natal International Airport, Natal connects with a network of Brazilian cities. In addition some are international flights.
Natal is also a major exporter of tropic fruits such as sugar apple, melon and papaya. Moreover Natal also exports carnauba wax and crustaceans.
The Portuguese Explorer Amerigo Vespucci founded Natal on the saint’s day of the same name in 1501. However no Europeans settled in the area for many decades. Leaving the local tribe the Potiguara tribe in peace.
But French buccaneers arrived and began trading with the locals. These French pirates were finally expelled by the Portuguese in 1597. Thereafter work began on a fort to protect the town from invaders. They called the fort the Fort of the Holy Kings (“Forte dos Santos Reis“). Also known as the Magi-Kings (“Forte dos Reis Magos“).
The Portuguese officially named the town Natal in 1599. Natal in Portuguese means “Christmas” or “nativity”. Apart from a short period, from 1633 to 1654, in which the Dutch took control, the Portuguese remained the conquering nation. During the Dutch period, they renamed the fort “Fort Ceulen” after one of their commanders.
Carne de Sol (Beef Jerky)
Unlike other parts of Brazil, Natal did not grow sugar cane. Its soil was too sandy. Instead the town relied upon the cattle farming in its interior. Besides fish, the main staple became dried meat known as “carne de sol“. Or Beef jerky.
Nowadays other products have emerged. Namely salt and petroleum, and to a certain extend minerals and gems.
Because of Natal’s easterly location, an agreement between Brazil and the US resulted in an American army base being set up during World War II. Notably Brazil was the only South American country to enter World War II. The Memorial Natal is a history museum in Avenida Prefeito Omar O’Grady which may be worth while visiting.
