Beautiful place with great historical value. It's situated in Pampulha Lake, which is declared as a world heritage by UNESCO. If you are an architecture lover should go there.

This place is a great addition when going around Pampulha Lake. There is not much to do at this location other than look at the architecture. If you are planning on going to see the Church of Saint Francis of Assisi this place was created by the same architect - Oscar Niemeyer.

Running around the Lagoa da Pampulha was one of my best experience in BH. It is a beautiful place with wonderful structures designed by Niemeyer. I recommend early mornings as the best time to visit the place. At night, you can go for a dinning experience in the nearby restaurants.

It´s a splendorous architetural complex build by Oscar Niemayer (a famous brazilian architect) with beauty gardens and fantastic details in architetural design and construction. In San Francisco Church the tiles are from Portugal and fantastic.

A wonderful complex of 4 buildings by Oscar Niemayer in a great setting. The museum, the chapel, the ball room and the athletic club around an articulate lake. Better have a driver and car not only to get there from Belo Horizonte but also locally.

The Chapel, the Ballroom and the Modern Art Museum are all well-worth a visit. First the chapel and its exquisite undulating roof, then the ballroom, a round pavilion with a serpentine canopy in a cute garden and last, the museum which has nice Brazilian art and very visitors. But unless you're driving, be prepared to walk a lot as they're... More

Nice buildings projected by a famous brasilian archictect, interesting style, has been abandoned by the government for too long. Robberies, kidnapping, Pampulha has sufferred with the increasing urban violence. Maybe due to dark areas in streets, it is now a place where one should keep an eye oppened. The public restrooms are in terrible condition. Casa do Baile, that should... More

The architecture by Oscar Neymeir is fantastic. The Pampulha Museum is very nice and I had the opportunity to see a contemporary performance there. I think if you are in BH you can't miss this place at all.

It's one part of the city that you must see you will see São Francisco church also there few things around as the pampulha lake. In one sunny day you can catch nice shots with your camera but at night be sure to be in a group because is not to safe.
