This is one place to go if one is interested in watching plays or exhibitions which happen quite frequently. Its important to find the schedules in advance or maybe buy tickets in advance to make sure you can catch the show.

As I had already seen the most popular sites of Belo Horizonte I decided to visit the Palácio das Artes. The building is very interesting. But there was only a limited number of exbitions. The souvenir shop was very nice.

A place to change the way you see the world and yourself. All types of art in one place. Great location (easy to get to on foot, bus or taxi). Many free exhibitions. Nice music by the state's philharmonic orchestra and many others. Nice dance exhibitions and plays. There is a small shop with many handmade products of Minas, but... More

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
