Sometimes you expect that a landmark is big and massive, as they say is everything in Brazil. This is a cool space with beautiful design inside. A nice restaurant and stunning view of lake.Try to be there at sunset, it makes everything prettier.

This is one of the buildings designed by Oscar Niemeyer, the most famous Brazilian architect,while yet at the beginning of his career, for the complex of Pampulha, in Belo Horizonte. This place was inaugurated in 1943 a ball room and restaurant that easily became popular among the local society. It suffered with different economic situations and it was closed sometimes as well as having different functions, as for instance annex of the art museum or restaurant in the 80s. Nowadays is preserved as a space for art exhibitions and it has a small auditorium. When I visited, it had a colourful interactive installation with T-shirts that you could wear and in doing that you take part in the art; and a kind of cabin where you have distorted images of yourself. In the auditorium it was shown a bit of the history of the Pampulha complex and its architectonic importance in Brazilian scenery. I enjoyed the visit. I thought that it was well maintained and having nice use of the space.
