I found it closed because it does not open every day but I have seen it several times and it became even more beautiful after it was restored and reinaugurated. The nativity scene has about 600 pieces and several scenarios. Those who visit never forget but also worth visiting a myriad of attractions within the botanical garden. All very beautiful and easy access as it is about 10 to 15 minutes from the center of BH, at Instituto Agronômico
