  • We know the Park mid-July 2017. Admission is free and has a beautiful view of the serra do curral. The day was beautiful and yielded good pictures. The trail we did was light and it was very nice to have this contact with nature. Worth knowing. Recommend going with light clothes and sneakers and bring something to nibble on, because in the region there don't remember seeing diner. Upstairs there are bathrooms and water fountains.

  • I am from BH and I have visited this park several times alone or accompanied. He is an icon of the most special in belo Horizonte, because nature is the boundary between the city and the mountain, giving you climb the mountain symbol of town for wide tracks and have a view of the entire city. In the park itself, typical vegetation of transition between Atlantic forest, cerrado and campo rupestre, that means no more mining than that. For those who like birds and birdwatching, on this site for many bird species, some extremely typical of the region and even rare, being must-see in the city for this purpose. Neighbor of the mangabeiras Park, another must-see. It's a shame that the city has failed to provide the guides that were longer crossings within the area that connects the two parks.

  • the visit to the Park of the Serra do Curral is a sight for sore eyes! Can observe in all your BH extension is very cool. The nearby towns are also seen, which gives a great opportunity to get to know the region. The walk is super quiet, for there is the dirt road and some tracks (if you like). Worth the ride.

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.
