Praca Sete De Setembro, Belo Horizonte

(280+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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).

  • O Centro de BH, a q nois encontrar
  • Here you can find anything, from banks to a shopping gallery, motels, fast food and cigarettes. It's a common meeting place and scenery for the various events in the city. Always dirty and crowded. Be careful for robberies.
  • Centro de BH. Vale a pena ir.
  • Centrão Nervoso
  • Cental area of Belo Horizonte. Near Cidade mall, Rock Gallery and Palácio das Artes. Some times can be crowded mainly in Christmas season. If you want to visit you need to take care of your belongs and cell phone. Many homeless around!
