Hippie Fair, Belo Horizonte

3.9
You can embrace the cultural wealth of Minas Gerais with a visit to the Sunday morning Hippie Fair. Established in 1969 to showcase the works of local artists, the market remains a popular meeting place for the community. Now one of the biggest open-air markets in Latin America, there are some 3,000 stalls where you can purchase a whole range of things, from handcrafted furniture to high fashion. While prices are reasonable, haggling is common practice. Make sure you visit the center of Hippie Fair, where you will find the food vendors offering delicious local cuisine and cold beer.

  • The fair is super-organized and tents divided by colors, according to the group they belong to: leather (shoes, bags and belts), stuff for baby, jewelry, food, wood, etc. .. worth visiting! But beware: the fair is absurdly full from mid-morning to front and the dates as mother's day, Christmas, etc.

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.
