“Iconic Niemeyer church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

This small church generated so much controversy when Niemeyer first designed it and now it became Belo Horizonte's undisputed icon.

“Beautiful church design & mosaics.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2011

It's nice to go to Pampulha area for an afternoon and visit the Igreja Sao Francisco De Assis as it is a beautiful piece of architecture. At the same time you can have a stroll along the lake and view the soccer & olympic stadiums that are being renovated for the world cup. Nearby is the zoo, botanical park & aquarium.
