Belo Horizonte (Beautiful Horizon, or Beagá), the capital of the state of Minas Gerais lies on the western slope of the Espinhaco Mountains and is built on several hills. The first of Brazil’s planned cities, it was laid out like a grid with broad avenues intersected by smaller streets, modeled after Washington DC and La Plata in Argentina. The city features contemporary and classical art nouveau and art deco architecture including several iconic buildings such as the Chapel of São Francisco in Pampulha. Discover a mix of atmospheric neighborhoods like the cosmopolitan Savassi, the tree-lined Afonso Pena Avenue, and the Liberdade Palácio which houses the governor’s offices. Dine at fine restaurants in Lourdes, experience the city’s buzzing nightlife, shop at Mercado Central and the vibrant weekend street market along leafy Parque Central. You will also find several large parks and hiking trails with panoramic views in the immediate outskirts of the city.
