Rua do Amendoim, Belo Horizonte
(1.9/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
An optical illusion at Rua do Amendoim has long puzzled drivers and pedestrians, and has even caused wild speculation about magic and mysterious underground deposits of iron and magnetized minerals. When you drive up to the beginning of this popular "Peanut Street" and put your car in neutral, your eyes will tell you, incorrectly, that you are now ascending the hill, not descending it. Thousands of visitors flock to this location every month, and even locals never tire of testing their powers of perception here. It is, of course, just a matter of the observer’s perspective and the unusual topography of the region. Make a quick stop here for a fun detour on your tour of the downtown area.

  • Returning from the Viewpoint of Mangabeiras and standing of vehicle will stop on the track to accompany the return of the vehicle. There's nothing of magnetism. Only a distorted visual impression of elevation. Who rides a bike. Waste of time.

  • The kids and even adults are without understanding how the car climbs on a descent. Picturesque and unmissable.

  • Fun and interesting place. Worth knowing. To turn off the car and put it in neutral it goes up the street.
