Located at th corner of the liberty plaza, the building is a work of art. Ven if you're not architecturally minded you'll enjoy looking at the lines and curves. It's such a shame that's it's starting to become in a state of disrepair. A true classic.

The lines of this building located at Praça da Liberdade are true Niemeyer. The architectonic complex at Praça da Liberdade has nothing to do with the Niemeyr builging because they were built at the turning of century 20. But even though the building isan impressive masterpiece.

This gorgeous building is being left to deteriorate and it is so sad....in saying that, it is still a beautiful building and absolutely worth seeing.

A small, charming version of the more known Copan building in São Paulo. The building is on Praça da Liberdade, which gather so many other attractions.

Architecturally, the most interesting part of BH. Across the street from Praça de Liberdade.
