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.

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.
