Belo Horizonte

"What a beautiful horizon!" This is how Pope John Paul II defined the view of the Minas Gerais capital. Commissioned in 1893, Belo Horizonte became the city with the best index of life quality in Latin America by the UN. It is considered the 62nd largest urban agglomeration in the world and 7th in Latin America, behind Mexico City, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Bogota and Lima, Belo Horizonte was planned to be the political and administrative capital of Minas Gerais, without losing the warmly hospitality to tourists.

The city has important monuments, parks and museums, such as Mangabeiras Park, Municipal Park, the Museum of Arts and Crafts, the Circuit Cultural Liberty Square, the  Pampulha Architectural Complex, and the Central Market.

BH is also nationally known as the "national capital of bars" because there are more bars per capita than any other major city in Brazil (they say).
