2.1/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web
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).

  • Central point of Belo Horizonte (minha querida BH). Very crowded. You have to be careful with the local traffic and millions of people trying to sell everything to you like mobile phones., mobile covers and many other "services". You have to be careful as you can also be robbed so especial attention to your belongings as you might be in every big city in Brazil. All in all a nice place.
  • A famosa praça 7.
  • Formigueiro de gente.
  • Coraçao da cidade
  • Coração da cidade, infelizmente sujo e violento.
