A must see for various attractions. Ever changing Art exhibits and works and they also have a reasonably priced gift shop that is good for something to grab for a local in that it isn't seen as a regular shopping center or souvenirs for home.

Notwithstanding which show is being presented worth the pleasure to to be on this theater. When in town check the shows scheduled for the week, including the weekend. Just a tour through the theater is free. Check the tour hours before going.

Palacio das Artes is a place where you contemplate good artists from all around Brazil and the World. Every month there are many different attractions for all tastes. It is located at the most famous avenue of Belo Horizonte, Avenida Afonso Pena, linking the famous Neighborhood Mangabeiras to the center of the city.

Yesterday I saw a Christmas concert at Palácio das Artes. The Symphonic Orchestra of Minas Gerais, The Lyrical Choir of Minas Gerais and the Adolescents' choir presented songs by Benjamin Britten, Handel, Christmas themes compilation and others. It was a superb performance. Its acoustics is very good and even if you sit up on the balcony/circle, you have an amazing... More

If you are in Belo and have a chance to go to the Palacio da artes for a night you must do so. It is an spacious venue with good seats and good accoustics. Do not miss a chance to visit the local arts fair during the day hours. On sundays you can see the BH fair that goes from... More

Great photographic exibit! Well organized and displayed. Completely free! Photos taken over a span of many years from across the globe. Really quite thought provoking and at times enchanting. Salgado has a skill as a photographer and an eye to see the beauty in the most interesting of subjects.

If you have some spare time in Belo Horizonte and is fond of culture, check out the events taking place at Palacio das Artes. The week I was there in August 2014 was great, an excellent photography exhibition and some Kubrick´s movies rolling every day. There is also a good cafe where you can take a break if you're walking... More
