What nice photos of your city! Many people in Toronto who are from Brazil come from Belo Horizonte!

Very nice shots there mate, thanks for the link. Interesting to see a place like that with leafless trees. Does it get cold in winter?

From these pictures Belo Horizonte looks very clean and well organized, but it's of course hard to judge such a big city from a few photos. Seems to have a lot of European colonial architecture as well. Really good photos, I like the trees and the palms in the city!

Thanks for the comment. I also intend to live in Canada for a while, it's a very nice country.

Well, actually this year winter came earlier, the temperatures were between 10ºC/22º 2 months ago. It really depends on the area you are, BH is a hilly city so if you're in a higher place like the one in the first pic it can get really cold and windy.

Thanks for the compliments.

This is a really nice area of the city. I'm going to post more pics of some other areas too.

Yes, in fact this square is kinda "historic center" of BH, although is a relatively young city (111 years).

Some pictures of the central area of BH. The street have lots of trees so is a bit dark to take photos, some of them got blurred.

Downtown area:























Lourdes and Savassi, these are very traditional residential districts of the city.

These Lourdes pictures are gorgeous!

I also like those of downtown. Rio de Janeiro and Goias streets are some of the sweetest places in the city.

This building was designed by Oscar Niemeyer in the 50's. By the way, Belo Horizonte has many buildings designed by him.

Thanks for the comment.

I love downtown, it's been improved a lot in the past 5 years. I specially like rua da Bahia.

Nice pics!

I went to BH in 2005 and I liked it a lot! It's a beautiful and very cozy city! Belo Horizonte would be one of my first options when choosing a city to live!

Anyway... Thanks for the pics, they're great!

PS: Some pics posted by engenx4 were taken by me, hahah...

I love this inviting atmosphere of the city, it's typical of BH.
