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.

  • The House is beautiful and is well preserved (at least on the outside). Visitation is not possible. This is about five years. At most, you can reach the sumptuous bars of this icon of the State capital. He stands out in the landscape and want to meet you with more depth. Could turn into another circuit Freedom Museum.

  • Historic seat of the State Government, the Palace of liberty is one of the main postcards from Belo Horizonte. One of the major works of the architectural ensemble of the freedom square, the building was the scene of political and social decisions that have marked the history of mining and Brazilian people.

  • The Palace of liberty currently went back to being the seat of the Executive branch of Minas Gerais, although most are in the city Administrative offices. The building is stunning on the outside and inside and has beautiful gardens at the entrance and on the sides with the blue palm trees (Bismarck).

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.
