    I have been told that the Central Market has become much more of a tourist attraction now than what it used to be, and most of the stands did sell most of the same items (other than different brands or varieties). There are a few which sell fruits, or original products but you need to look carefully. One of the best was a bulk chocolate/fruit shop that had products I didn't see elsewhere, like chocolate covered Acai, apricots and other Brazil specific fruits. And, you get to try samples of each.

    Lot of liquors, tourist souvenirs and such across many of the stores. The food courts were busy, and the small bars were full too.

    I also agree with previous reviewers that they should stop selling puppies and birds. But historically this was where chickens were bought and sold so that also keeps some of the originality of it. That section reminds me of many other places across the world where the same occurs. Bring hand sanitizer, I was told they are known for sick animals historically.

    There are bathrooms, there are some with automatic gates which you need a keycard to access, but a little further away there are others which you have to pay 2 Reals to use and someone at the window to take you money. As expected, not the cleanest so try to avoid if you can.

    Oh, and for some reason catching an Uber outside was somewhat difficult, and took a long time. There were multiple people facing the same problem.

    Based on advice from the hotel front desk, I came here to go running. It’s a nice, smaller park with a variety of paths, water, urban views. Lots of people walking, talking, running. Would definitely recommend it for exercise. Would not necessarily go out of my way to see it. Very pleasant overall.

    The new stadium is fantastic. Perfect viewpoints from any seat. Good structure and very well kept.
    But to get inside is so troublesome. It can literally take you 45 mins to get to your seat.
    And if you park your car in the stadium parking lot, give it an hour or so to get out. This should be taken care of

    The CCBBB is located in a lovely building. I saw the Man Ray exhibit, which I believe runs to about early March 2020. While not Brazilian, it is a great show, complemented by a long but extremely interesting documentary, and on the level of anything you will find in New York City or the major cities of Europe. Since I was there over the 2009/2020 holidays, not much else was going on, but well worth the visit.

    It was closed to the public upon our visit, but the outside is really unique, and on the banks of the largest lake in Belo. Hopefully we can come back and see the inside next visit.

    Many of the patios were fenced off and being revitalized, but overall this is a very good view of the whole city from atop. This is probably the wealthiest part of the city, so surrounded by nice houses, and restaurants as you work your way down the hill.

    In the middle of downtown, is a peaceful place to appreciate a well preserved catholic church. They recently repainted the church to its original colors. If you are walking down the city its a good place to spend a quiet time.

    I visited during the Christmas and New Year holidays 2019/2020 and was extremely impressed by the photo exhibit, which includes photos from the 1920´s to the 1950´s from Diamantina, MG. I believe it runs through early February, 2020 The documentary was excellent. A wonderful socio-cultural view of the early 20th century in MG.

    The Lagoa da Pampulha (Pampulha lake) and the surrounding area are definitely a must see whenever you are visiting Belo Horizonte.

    It just a really calm area where you can just relax by the water or do a wide variety of activities.

    Be sure to also check out the local, small church which is also a must see.
