Cidade Administrativa, Belo Horizonte

3.6
Oscar Niemeyer designed these curved, glass buildings that make crescent moon shapes around a manmade pond. Cidade Administrativa is now the home of city administration and government offices, but you can visit the interior via a small shopping center and restaurant located inside the buildings. The open and flat landscape around the Cidade Administrativa make this a popular spot for joggers, so tie up those trainers and tour the area at a jogger's clip.   For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Belo Horizonte holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Cidade Administrativa and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The location is very nice and beautiful scenery, very green and birdsong, the building is very beautiful, however I don't think I can be a trip in itself, and is away from the center of Belo Horizonte.

  • The Government transferred all the Secretaries, who were crowded in the various buildings of the square of freedom, for a trendy and current architecture, gathering all of them and more control of the city, all in one place.

  • Very good to work with. Despite being a little distant, the access is very easy for staff or visitors.

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.
