Why locals love it

Right in the heart of downtown emerges a delightful green area with 182.000 m²: the Américo Renné Giannetti Municipal Park – or just Municipal Park. Founded on september 26th, 1897, its original project, designed in english romantic style, was signed by the french architect Paul Villon. In 1992, the park was restored by a mining company.

Why you should visit it

Once in Belo Horizonte, book a day for a walk in the park. It comprises an ecosystem with centennial trees and a wide variety of animal and plant species. Several springs supplies three lagoons and around 280 species of exotic and native trees. It is a true refuge for wildlife! The park also houses a theater, an orchidarium and an amusement park.

Special tip

On saturdays, sundays and holidays, the place becomes very crowded. And inevitably dirty. Unless you want to see natives having fun, avoid those days.
