Book flights to Belo Horizonte

Belo Horizonte lies in the southeastern state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. Nicknamed the "Beautiful Horizon," it's not on the coast but sits in a large basin surrounded by mountains. The city itself is planned and spacious, with wide avenues and green areas. Fun fact: Belo Horizonte holds a claim to fame as Brazil's first planned capital city. Built in the late 19th century, the city was designed with a grid layout inspired by Washington D.C. This resulted in a very organized urban center compared to many other Brazilian cities.
