Belo Horizonte

Garden City

Named for its spectacular mountain views, and known locally as the "Garden City," Belo Horizonte has historically fostered a connection with nature since its inauguration in 1897. Today, having grown to a population of more than 5 million, the city has lost a bit of that natural touch. However, beyond the planned streets and high-rise buildings, a holiday in Belo Horizonte still gives you great access to the mountainscapes and charming old towns of Minas Gerais state. As with most major cities in Brazil, Belo Horizonte is home to a diverse mix of ethnicities and cultures, and a mix of museums, parks, restaurants, and other attractions can easily fill your itinerary here. Plan your holiday in Belo Horizonte and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Brazil vacation generator.

Where to stay in Belo Horizonte

Most of the city's accommodations lie within the inner ring road, in close proximity to the best attractions in Belo Horizonte. For convenience, look to stay in the vicinity of Praça Raul Soares, the city's central park and rotary. You can also find a range of high-rise hotels a bit farther south, in the neighborhoods of Boa Viagem and Savassi, close to Praça Diogo de Vasconcelos. About 10 km (6.2 mi) north of the city center, the 1940s neighborhood of Pampulha stands out as one of the most interesting places to visit in Belo Horizonte, and offers a decent selection of lodgings near the airport.
