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.

  • I visited the Palace of liberty and the met inside a couple of years ago. Now he is closed to visitation, absurd. The House is beautiful and has a lot of story to tell.

  • A very beautiful Palace. You look good in front of freedom square, but it's a shame because it has no access to tourists

  • Across freedom square, is a good tourist place to visit despite not having permission to enter. Requires some permission to enter and shoot inside

  • 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.

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.
