Niemeyer building, Belo Horizonte

3.7
#13 of 33 in Sightseeing in Belo Horizonte
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
The sinuous curves of Niemeyer building, designed by the great modernist Oscar Niemeyer, lend an elegance to this otherwise imposing tower block. The whole structure seems to float on a few paper-thin supporting walls. The building is next to a tree-filled park, which provides some excellent leafy framing for your photographs.

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.

  • My dad really likes this building because of a picture he saw years ago. In person, it's cool, but it's not overwhelming. Only 4 stars.  more »
  • From a distance in a fine sunset this edificio might look great as a fine example of Oscar's engineering finesse, but close up on an average day it's a wreck. Large pieces of concrete are spalling off...  more »
  • It was projected by Niemeyr architect, and its modern lines (for the 50´s or 60´s) let one realize what kind of buildings he planned for Brasília later.  more »
