Belo Horizonte’s most important square derives its prominence from multiple sources. For one, it’s old, built between 1895 and 1897 when the new capital was being founded.
Secondly, it’s sheer architectural diversity is awesome. First modelled after Versailles in France, the oldest buildings are Neo-Classical, as are the gardens and fountains. Other architectural styles include Art Deco, Modern, and Post-Modern.
The circle of buildings surrounding the square are quite important too, a vast complex of spaces integrating art, popular culture, science and entertainment.
