Palacio da Liberdade, Belo Horizonte

4.5
On weekends and public holidays, Palacio da Liberdade opens its doors to the public with a permanent exhibition entitled "Palace of Liberty - Memories and Stories." Opened in 1897, the palace was for many years the seat of government in Belo Horizonte, and has been the scene of many decisions that have shaped the nation. Equally as fascinating as the building's political history are the eclectic architecture and decor. The exterior of the building combines numerous European styles, of which the neo-classical elements are predominant, whilst the decor ranges from Louis XV, to Moorish, to Art Nouveau. On the tour you pass through 30 sumptuous rooms filled with crystal chandeliers, gilded bronze, parquet floors and rich furniture. The centerpiece of the palace is an iron staircase, cast in Germany, in the Art Nouveau style. Plan my trip to Belo Horizonte with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • A place of charm and glamour, the Palace of liberty is a walk through history. Until recently the Governor worked out at this address, full of manicured gardens and historic furniture. Today, with the transfer of the Office for the administrative centre, the Palace is open to visitors on Sundays. Delight to walk in the Circuit of freedom!

  • When visiting Belo Horizonte is almost mandatory to meet the famous Palace of liberty located on the beautiful Square of liberty. Main postcard-historic seat of the State Government. With beautiful gardens in original aspect with amazing French sculptures in marble, an orchard and a gazebo. Although it is closed to visitation, you can see through the bars and travel through time. Recommend too much a tour here. Hugs, Geraldo Mathur

  • It is the most important meeting point in Belo Horizonte, surrounded by museums, full of nature, water falls and vibrant people having fun in their way. Amazing experince.
  • Calm during days and crowded during nights. Nice place, animated and well decorated for Christmas with lightnings
  • This place it's amazing, but there are few things that we may to see that it need be reformed.
  • It's an amazing place here in Below Horizonte, you can make jogging, running, take a break and breath. 😍
  • A must-see in BH. Beautiful, peaceful, colourful. Plus, most of the most interesting museums are around the square.
