  • The Centre of culture is not very large, but very cozy, very miner. Easy access, maintenance gear popular houses. When I visited there was an exhibition in honor of NS Agha with different beautiful and interesting works. Worth checking out.

  • The space is a little further away from the freedom square, but you can walk quietly. There are 4 floors with folk art and crafts, regional pieces of embroidery. Not all showrooms are great, but they are air-conditioned, clean and with the proper lighting for the exhibitions. If you like crafts, this is the place.

  • I really loved the popular expressions of art. This is the place to know Brazilian traditional art and folklore.
  • I expected more but there was a couple of nice things to view

  • Excellent. There are new exhibitions often featuring artists not so well known. Great opportunity to show your art and delight yourself with the art of others.

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.
