  • One of the most important sites of belohorizontinos are in very bad moment of your history. Dragged events (even the famous Christmas seasons, lighting, etc), of terrible quality, taken by hawkers who make unpleasant even walk our children without that small are covered to force a purchase. Its conservation is shameful. The parks and sights of BH are not getting the care they deserve.
