Praca Sete de Setembro, Belo Horizonte

1.0
One of the busiest squares in the city, Praca Sete de Setembro boasts an obelisk at its center, situated at the middle of very busy junction of two major avenues. Two major avenues (the Afonso Pena and Amazonas) intersect with two smaller streets at 90 and 45 degree angles, creating an active environment shared by traffic vehicles and pedestrians. The square got its name on the occasion of commemoration of the centenary of the Independence of Brazil on September 7, 1822. The obelisk, also known by locals as “lollipop”, is made of granite and its needle-thin height reaches 7 m (22 ft).

  • You think of everything here. A thousand different people doing a bit of everything, working, resting, getting to know other, studying ... Place to meet well the way of life of the industry of Belo Horizonte.

  • The square seven, as it is known, is the heart of the commercial centre of Belo Horizonte and he's not even a square. Actually is the intersection of two major avenues of BH: Afonso Pena and Amazon. Surrounded by buildings constructed in the 1940/1950, one of them, the movie theater today Brazil restored, works exclusively as a theatre and concert hall. No more like movies.

  • Belo Horizonte tourist spot very commented, but that gets lost in the midst of the city. Is a junction of streets (Afonso Pena with Amazon). Should be better care and become a highlight in the midst of daily life.
