A highlight of BH
Dec 2018 • Couples
This park around an artificial lake is a must if you visit the city. It is a 15-20 min drive from the main tourist area, so not really walking distance. Still, the super well known Oscar Niemeyer buildings will take you back to the 40’s and 50’s grandiosity. I particularly like the museum buildings though modo go for the church.

Great View

A great place to enjoy a good coffee, in the cafe inside the building, and enjoy beautiful nature and view. I recommend having a coffee there in sunset.

Great place for photo ops
Sep 2018 • Business
We did not see much art aside from the sculptures outside the building. The building itself was interesting but most of the action was happening outside in the form of photo shoots. Three different couples looked like they hired photographers to take wedding, baby bump and casual pictures among the natural beauty at the property.

Long layover in Belo Horizonte
Apr 2018 • Solo
In order to get a cheaper airfare, I had a 6 hour layover in Belo Horizonte. I had previously toured the Oscar Niemayer buildings in Brasilia so decided to walk around Pampulha lake and take in the opportunities there. I took a taxi from the airport to Igreja de Sao Francisco de Assis, and then walked from Casa Kubitschek to Casa do Baile. I decided to look at the Art Museum across the lake rather than walk all the way around.
I walked slowly and it took about an hour. The buildings were interesting, but clearly not in their prime and not wonderfully maintained. At the chapel, despite a large number of sanitation workers cleaning the sidewalks, the area felt a little dirty. There was a nice collection of urban birds in and around the lake, and there were signs at the highlight bulldings in English and Spanish as well as Portuguese. There was a full sun, but 95% of the walk was in the shade. There was a steady stream of walkers, joggers and bikers taking advantage of the path when I was there. My favorite structure was the Casa de Baile with its maintained garden.
But I am glad I went out of my way to do this.

Modern Art at Pampulha
Nov 2017 • Family
This is an absolute must in Belo Horizonte. Around Pampulha, there are a few modern construction (a fantastic church, a museum, a house of ball and a club), all drawn by
Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer in the 1940 when ex-presidente Juscelino Kubstcheck was the mayor of BH. Some people consider this set as a previous construction of what would be Brasilia in the future. Do not miss this if you come to Belo Horizonte.

Beautiful lagoon World Heritage Site
Aug 2017 • Friends
An artificial lagoon with fantastic architecture of the Modernist mid XX century era.The lagoon has marvelous views and the walking path around is great to relax.There are some restaurants ,one in the old Ball Room designed by famous architect Oscar Niemeyer,and a small cafe at the former Casino,today an art museum.Walking distances between these monuments are about 4 to 5 kms,so in dry hot weather season (july-august) ,if you are not used to walk long distances,is better to use a bike or a hip hop retro bus that goes around the lagoon,starting in front of San Francisco Chapel,also an important architectural creation of Niemeyer.In front of the chapel there are some self service restaurants,and coconut and drink carts in the small chapel plaza.
Belo Horizonte is about 20 to 30 minutes by car from Pampulha so it is important to consider this in order to choose the location of your hotel,in case you will stay only at Pampulha or downtown Belo Horizonte.
