Nice place

There is a lot of homeless in the square gardens and pool. The place is not very clean, although is still a beautiful place.

Nice place, with stores that will carry good brands and good restaurants in the area. The police presence is almost inexistent. If you go, use plain clothing and no jewelry. Do like the locals do and walk like the locals.

Traditional place in town, but nowadays became just another square with a few commerce around. Have to mention there isn't no parking spaces after the last 'refitment' they made, building fountains and adding some benches.

Beautiful public place in Belo Horizonte. Nice to go for a walk but just be careful. Not the safest place on earth.

We were holidaying with our 2 kids who are in their twenties. After reading all the reviews on how vibey this area is supposed to be, we booked our hotel nearby to enjoy some of the action, but were horribly disappointed.Things may have been a bit busier later at night, but it was very flat during the day and also...

After visiting the Plaza of Liberty and most of the Museums there, I wanted to find somewhere different to visit but it was getting late and I did not want to go too far.

Visited Savassi with some friends after we saw the match Colombia-Greece at the stadium, and i found this place really interesting. It has a lot of bars, restaurants, stores, live music, even some stands with handcrafts. A place to visit and enjoy thew night live.

Besides from the malls, Savassi is where the young people normally go shopping and stroll. There are good restaurants and bars around and it's near Liberty Square, with lots of great musuems.
