The Pampulha architectural complex consists of various designs of renowned architect Oscar Niemeyer. Unfortunately, the projects are uncharacterized, poorly maintained, some in poor condition, with no security and no tourist infrastructure.

The "Lagoa da Pampulha", or Pampulha Lake, is the largest artificial lake in Belo Horizonte which is a place to spend the day. There you can see the iconic complex from brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, with the Art Museum and its exhibitions, the "Casa do Baile", or Ball House, and the waved platform towards the entrance and the beautiful "Igreja da Pampulha", a church which is one of the city's most important landmarks that was not only designed by Oscar Niemeyer, but has also gardens by the famous landscape designer Roberto Burle Marx and the tiles painted by Portinari. The view from the lake is aways stunning, and locals like to spend the day there jogging or walking by the lake. There is also a park on an artificial island where you can go for a picnic, take kids to play with kites or hang out while you watch the moves of a family of "Capivaras", a large mamal that lives by the lake.

Construction everywhere, bad traffic and not much to do. Wait until the World Cup before you visit it.

This is Niemeyer's first major project, commissioned in the 1940's by Belo Horizonte's mayor Juscelino Kubitscheck (who later became Brazil's president and then commissioned Niemeyer to design Brasilia).
