Stroll through Freedom Square
Freedom Square stands proudly in the heart of Belo Horizonte. Also known as Praça de Liberdade or Liberty Square, until recently it was a hub of the city’s political activity. With towering palms, cobbled pathways and iconic buildings such as Governor’s Palace, Niemeyer Building and a vast public library, it’s a pleasure to stroll through. The best time to visit is during late afternoon to early evening when fountains illuminate, and musicians play lilting Brazilian tunes by the bandstand.
