Palacio da Liberdade, Belo Horizonte
(4.5/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Palacio da Liberdade and other Belo Horizonte attractions into our Belo Horizonte vacation route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • This site is far and when we got there it was closed for tours indefinitely. That's what the bouncer informed us. We got the information here on Tripadvisor and said being open, we missed the trip.
