    Inspired by the Central Park of New York, originally had 3 times the current size, the city was growing and the need to narrow it down between the Avenue Afonso Pena and Ezequiel Mall Days. Park with free leisure and meeting point of all the tribes of BH. Ideal for walking and contemplation, on Sundays usually has musical presentation. For being totally open, do not recommend a complete visitation after 18hrs, overall is very good.

    It's worth taking a half hour of your day to rest within the Municipal Park. Very nice.

    Great leisure without paying anything! An immense green area in the center of Belo Horizonte with a multitude of options for leisure, and even the paid leave at a reasonable cost.

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.
