  • I've been in the folk art Center and really liked it. Due to the proximity to Christmas, there is an exhibition of Nativity scenes, very interesting. That out fixed galleries, showing a bit of popular culture from Minas Gerais, with tools, carpets and religious items. The building is very nice and is well located.
