  • The church is considered the masterpiece of the Pampulha Architectural Ensemble where, in the design of the chapel, Oscar Niemeyer does new experiments in reinforced concrete and was the last building to be inaugurated of the Ensemble. Its interior houses via Crúcis, consisting of fourteen panels of Cândido Portinari (considered one of its most significant works) and also the figurative external panels covered with ceramic tablets in light blue and white tones with numerous Masonic symbols and other meanings that are pointed out when by a guided tour. And the gardens are signed by Burle Marx. Despite the consecration by architects and artists, the chapel – inaugurated in 1943 – was poorly received by the archdiocese, who refused to accept it and was only consecrated 17 years later in 1959. The church of Pampulha is one of the best known postcards of the mining capital.

  • Beautiful place to visit in Belo Horizonte. With a lake and a beautiful plants.
  • Of course it's another point of interest anyone shouldn't miss when visiting BH, unfortunately it's under restoration and was closed by the time I've been there.
