  • Unmissable to know the history of the creation of Belo Horizonte. I recommend it as a family outing. I went to my son's school work and I loved it.

  • Do not expect anything extraordinary-it is a colonial house, from the time when BH was only the Curral Del Rey, which housed the oxen created by the pastures of the state, and from where-after resting, went to the count (I give the name of the neighboring city) and they followed to Rio de Janeiro. The house is a testimony of a time, preserved without major changes. Beautiful and interesting, curious testimony of the customs of a time.
