Natal, the Sun’s Bride, is the most pleasant and beautiful logical research center in Brazil — probably also the best. In fact, logic is a major research area in three different departments at UFRN: Mathematics, Computer Science and Philosophy.
Natal has always been an island of tranquility in Brazil: the sunny beaches, sand dunes, year-round nice weather, and historical monuments attract tourists from all around the world. It is the Brazilian state capital which is closest to Europe (a 6.5-hour direct flight from Lisbon).
As a very touristic town, it boasts many hotels, restaurants and every kind of tourism-related business. Moreover, the natalenses have a very warm way of treating visitors.
