Special conditions

Even though Belo Horizonte is the state capital, it's famed of its architectural pearls, its colony art and historical cities, which are rather modern. These are not the places to find relics from the golden age when the whole area was in bloom. Nevertheless the city, which is in great progress, is very lively and friendly to its guests.
