  About Belo Horizonte

Surrounded by Serra do Curral, the city of Belo Horizonte is the capital of the state of Minas Gerais. With 2,502,557 inhabitants, the city is a place of national influence when it comes to politics and intellectual production. Important aspects of the city are its geography, full of hills and lowlands, and the weather, with dry winters and hot and humid summers.

The city transits between tradition and innovation in a privileged location in the Southeast of Brazil, one hour away by plane from São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The international airport receives many connecting flights from all around the world daily.

Belo Horizonte is dynamic, diversified and famous for its hospitality and its traditional gastronomy. At the Central Market you will find more than 400 shops selling a variety of products, such as fresh vegetables, live animals, meat, dairy products, sweets, cachaça, regional crafts, religious items, cookware, dishes and spices. There you can try delicacies such as feijão tropeiro (prepared with flour and sausage), torresmo, cheese bread and the canastra cheese, which is a Cultural Heritage of Brazil.

 

An important aspect of Belo Horizonte’s influence is seen in its architecture. The city is one of the cradles of modern Brazilian architecture, which emerged in the 1940s, with the architectural ensemble of Pampulha, designed by Oscar Niemeyer.

 

Located at the rim of the Pampulha Lagoon, Francisco de Assis Church is the most famous postcard of the capital. It features the Burle Marx gardens, the bronze bas-relief sculptures carved by Alfredo Ceschiatti, and an abstract panel created by Paulo Werneck. The exterior is decorated with beautiful Portinari panels.

Built shortly after the city’s establishment, Praça da Liberdade was once the seat of power of the state of Minas Gerais. Earlier buildings convey the architectural trends of the time, featuring an eclectic style with neoclassical elements. Over the years, several new buildings were built in the square with different architectural styles. Strolling through the gardens inspired by the Palace of Versailles and admiring the fountains, monuments and an old bandstand is a common practice among Minas Gerais natives.

 

Another great tour is Circuito Liberdade, which is composed of 13 institutions, including museums and cultural centers, covering different aspects of the cultural and artistic universe. It’s recognized as an important cultural corridor in Brazil.

For a panoramic view of the city, visit Mirante do Mangabeiras. It is considered an environmentally protected area, located in the district of Mangabeiras behind the Governor's Palace in an area of Approximately 35,400 m2. With two wooden decks installed, each measuring about 125m2, the viewpoint offers visitors a panoramic view of the city and of the Parque das Mangabeiras. In celebration of the anniversary of the city, lunettes were installed what allow the user visual approach on the urban landscape. 

Belo Horizonte is also considered one of the main convention centers of Brazil, standing out as promising market for technology, innovation and entrepreneurship.
