Casa Do Baile, Belo Horizonte

4.0
Part of the "Pampulha Architectural Complex" that brought architect Oscar Niemeyer international acclaim and popularity in the 1940s, Casa Do Baile was designed as a small restaurant/dance hall, built on its own artificial island. It includes a circular block from which a free-form marquee unravels, following the contour of the island. After the building’s completion, this free-form design became wildly popular in Brazilian architecture, adding to Niemeyer’s already enviable global reputation. The site is close to the Pampulha Art Museum and is a must-see for all lovers of modern architecture. Don’t leave before walking down to the nearby lagoon, where you can take photographs of this key cultural area and its important landmark.

  • Well located, with a nice view to the lagoon. Good service and good structure with food service (lunch). Only problem is the parking lot, there are slots when it is full.

  • Despite the small display and the visit lasts at most half an hour, the place is very interesting and beautiful. Worth the visit. And if you are willing to make a good cup of coffee, is a good choice because it has a great view of the pond.

  • I was blown away by the beauty of the building, even if it has found untapped! Regardless of what is being exposed, it's worth the visit just to see the building and its beautiful curves! Wonderful!

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.
