  • A great place to take a walk. This square is literally surrounded by museums, making it an important place to visit if you want to make a cultural excursion in Belo Horizonte. It is pretty safe and the police is often there to ensure this. The trees and plants offer a pleasant green environment in the middle of the city.
  • Enjoy running here when staying in Belo Horizonte. The Christmas light display in December is beautiful. Very safe and well attended by police. Lots to do in the immediate area of the park as well, museum, cinema, restaurants..... worth checking out just to people watch or exercise.....
