Lourdes is a fine area in Belo Horizonte where you can find about everything from hotels to restaurants and parks.


Belo Horizonte is easily understood through any city map which outlines Contorno Avenue, that means the road ( central ring ) encapsulating the city (marking its boundries).


Belo Horizonte is actually a mid-sized town inside Contorno road (circular ring) .

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Well Planned City Inside Contorno Ave. (Circular Ring ). Tourists should bear in mind to stay only inside Contorno Ave. The neighbourings worth roaming are: Lourdes, Funcionarios, Santo agostinho, Savassi. Streets are North to South and east to west.
  • Cons:The people are reserved and suspicious and expect you to act as a local citizen. It means that you should not ask much and not act like a tourist.There are many migrants from the interior of the state and those are not used to urban life.
  • In a nutshell:Belo Horizonte is a good city inside Contorno Ave. Real Belo Horizonte born people are the only ones who know the city*(Lourdes, Santo Agostinho, Funcionarios).
