Belo Horizonte – Brazil Experience

Belo Horizonte Minas Gerais – This is the capital of Southwest Brazil. Surrounded by vast, lush mountains, the ancient city is known for its large Mineirao Stadium. The old stadium was built in 1965 and is being renovated right now by ambitious architects. Touted as the jewel of Brazilian sports, the new venue is expected to be one of the finest in the world.

There are two main sections to the old city, each with a variety of local businesses. As the city’s old name suggests, seis de relu includes several government offices, such as Police Station nasdaq (Minas Gerais State Transport Company, MSCT), and the Army. They are also known as minas achts or “eight streets”, informally.

Belo Monte (the island’s principal commercial centre) is Belo Monte’s heart. Minas Gerais State Transport Company, Minas Maravilhosa Station constitutes the commercial heartbeat of Belo Horizonte. The station serves most of the region and is the busiest in Brazil. Maravilhosa Minas, and Salvador da Cauca also serve the area. There are many malls within the marinas. The Cidade Maravilhosa is located at the center of the marina. Also, the Catedral do Maravilhosa can be found in Citrus Town.

Cidade Maravilhosa, or City Park, is probably the most popular tourist destination, housing a massive mall, the marina and public parks. Many restaurants, luxury resorts and hotels are located in this area. Cidade Maravilhosa’s Central Station is where you will find the largest belo-horizonte hotel. This hotel is one of the finest examples of modern architecture in Brazil, with exceptional views of the city and natural landscapes surrounding it. The hotel’s enormous roof garden is one of its most distinctive features. It can be found downtown.
