Raul Soares Square

Gaze up at the central fountain’s powerful jets and stroll along the curves of tree-laden paths in the city’s nucleus.

Raul Soares Square is an elegant plaza of French design in the heart of Belo Horizonte. Several patches of grassy gardens adorn the perfect circle of the plaza, which has an impressive fountain at its core. Take photos of the fountain and enjoy the serenity of the park in this central part of the city. 

Wander along the well-paved paths among the dog-walkers and joggers who frequent this charming spot. Listen to the soothing sound of splashing water beside the fountain and gaze up at the rising towers that enclose the park, serving as the sole reminders of the urbanity outside of this plaza. A maze of paths adorned with colorful floral arrangements stretches out from the central fountain.

Bring food and drinks for a picnic with your family and friends. The paths surrounding the grassy sections are made up of intriguing artistic designs and mosaics. Relax with a book in the shade of a tree and sip from the drinking fountains to stay refreshed. 

Stroll around the perimeter of the plaza or rent a bicycle to tour this part of the city. Explore the many cafés, bars and restaurants in the nearby streets. Browse the stores in the Shopping Cidade mall and the stalls of the adjacent Central Market of Belo Horizonte. 

Stay for a spectacular sunset. Be watchful of your belongings in the park at all times, particularly as evening descends. 

Raul Soares Square takes its name from the former governor of the Minas Gerais State, Raul Soares de Moura. This is the central pivot point of Belo Horizonte, around which the city grows. Ride a bus to one of the many stops on the main roads surrounding the circular plaza. Visit other nearby attractions, such as Igreja São José or St. Joseph Church, September Seven Square and the Popular Art Center.
