Belo Horizonte : Michelin's recommendations


Considered by some as the city offering the best quality of life in the whole of Latin America, Belo Horizonte is a world away from the urban chaos that sometimes seems to sum up Rio or São Paulo. A few gems of Modernist architecture, designed by Niemeyer, provide an excellent foretaste of the state's Baroque cities. Most travellers only pass through, but if you decide to linger you might be pleasantly surprised by its cultural and culinary wealth. On another note, BH (pronounced "beyaga") is also famous for its nightlife… and its football club.
