Stories of Belo Horizonte


Founded in 1897, Belo Horizonte was erected over the rubble of its past, burying the old houses and streets of former Curral Del Rey. It is said that some ghosts of these first dwellers who were banned haunt the city today.

The history of the construction of the new capital and its urban legends are in this room in the Memorial, where the Secretary of Treasure’s office was located in the 19th century, when the building was inaugurated.  The furniture dates back to this period.
