One of the most important squares in Belo Horizonte, Liberty Square was chosen at the end of the 19th century to be the administrative centre of the state of Minas Gerais.
Today it is a beautiful place, surrounded by green areas and gardens. Around the square, you can see some historic buildings, which make up the ” Liberty Square Cultural Circuit”. The circuit is made up of ten different cultural spaces that integrate art, popular culture, knowledge, and entertainment.


It comprises the monuments around the Pampulha Lagoon: Casa do Baile, the former Casino building, the Yacht Club, and the Church of St Francis. Their designs were drawn up by the architect Oscar Niemeyer and they were built in the early 40s.

In 2016, the Pampulha Architectural Complex was recognized by the United Nations (UN) as a World Heritage Site.
