It’s a beautiful city
The city of Belo Horizonte is a sunny retreat in the mountains with great parks, art galleries, theaters and historical monuments.
Brazilian city Belo Horizonte is surrounded by large parks and mountains. It was founded in the 19th century with the mining industry at its core. Now, as one of the largest cities in Brazil, it is a center of fashion, art and business.
Enjoy a trip to the popular Praça de Estação (Station Square) in the downtown area. Look for the museum that is also a former train station. Browse exhibits about old professions including cobblers and metal workers.
Remaining in the city center, visit the first church to be constructed in Belo Horizonte: Igreja São José (San Jose Church). Admire its grandiose façade, Gothic-style spires and stained-glass windows. The church is a regular meeting place for travelers and locals.

Spend the evening at one of the principal art hubs in the city, the Palácio das Artas (Art Palace), which is both a theater and a gallery.
