  • Nice and relaxing place. Nice to have a snack with family or a good wine in the evening. There are several interesting places around (Museum, Observatory of ufmg, etc) that you can organize a passed the afternoon.

  • First the square is a charming, gorgeous with several Palm trees-Imperial and with varied sources. Has a path of stones, like the streets of Ouro Preto that also give a really nice aesthetic value the square. There's a concentration of people walking, running, riding a skateboard/bike/rollerblade, dating and doing activities in groups as well as yoga and dance. Outside the characteristic gazebo that is right in the middle. Sometimes roll a few cultural activities in the square, but if you don't have anything scheduled don't worry, she is surrounded by cultural centres, see ccbb. Also has cooking nearby, the Darling (sandwiches) and the Assacabrassa (meat) are really close. The fine arts is also on the side for those who enjoy a more alternative cinema. If you go to BH be sure to go through the square and meet your surroundings.

  • Kind of unpretentiously, visit the Praça da Liberdade in Belo Horizonte and come across an amazing leisure offer and cultuna in the State capital. Besides old houses immaculately kept, find rich information jealously guarded and published both creatively and enthusiastic. From then on, for 3 or 4 days, we visited the various houses that surround the square. We're back home really impressed by the excellent work of the miners. Congratulations

  • Ótimo lugar para jogar Pokemon Go.
  • Beautiful place to visit. I recommend to every single one to visit. There are lots of museums around with different propositions and the place itself get a lot of different people together with different cultural movements. It is near to the a huge diversity of restaurants and 3 shopping Malls where you can find every kind of souvenirs.
