About Praca Da Liberdade, Belo Horizonte

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.

These includes:

  • The Cultural Center Bank of Brazil
  • The Knowledge Center UFMG
  • The Museum of Mines and Metal
  • The Memorial Minas Gerais
  • Fiat House of Culture
  • The Artistic Training Center
  • The Horizon Sebrae
  • ThePalácio da Liberdade
  • The State Public Library Luiz de Bessa
  • The Public Archives Miner
  • The Mining Museum

All taken together, these make up the Circuito Cultural Praça da Liberdade (Cultural Circuit of Freedom Square).

Always bustling with activity, the square is a great place for people watching. The surroundings are very pretty. There’s almost always a programme or the other going on. Street musicians never let up.
