About Conjunto Arquitetonico Da Pampulha, Belo Horizonte

It’s not often a complex is built for sheer architectural vanity, but that’s what master architect Oscar Niemeyer did in the 1940s. Postcard-picture perfect, the complex’s sinuous and curving architecture is fascinating and beautiful.

There are three main structures:

  • Museu de Arte da Pampulha (Pampulha Museum of Modern Art): A stunning glass and concrete construct with landscaped gardens; it was once a thriving casino.
  • Casa da Baile (House of Dance): An exhibition and workshop centre for architecture and design, with a collection of Oscar Niemeyer’s own sketches.
  • Igreja de Sao Francisco de Assis (St. Francis of Assisi Church): An elegant if unconventional looking church with 14 pretty mosaics describing the life and times of St. Francis of Assisi.
