Why locals love it

Long before the inauguration of the first mall in Belo Horizonte, the Galeria Ouvidor (Ombudsman Gallery) was already an old effervescing shopping center, providing goods such as clothes, shoes, beauty products, LPs, craft and art items, watches, glasses, jewels, philately articles, new and used books etc.

Why you should visit it

Apart the vinyl stores, all the business mentioned above you’ll find there. The shops are not fancy, but good enough to showcase a lifestyle that has been lived since 1964, when this commercial centre was founded. I call it “artisans bastion” due to the infinity of craft stores located throughout the gallery. Are you a craftsman? That’s your venue.

Special tip

A visit to the gallery is not complete without eating a pastel (sort of a fried salted pasty) at the Pastelaria Ouvidor.
