by pepples46

the Town I am very fond of. My best friend lived and worked here in a Volunteer Project, teaching weaving and batic, building an Artschool which exsist and functioned till today.
Nova Lima, in the early days of the Bandeirantes and colonisation, they called the Town... Ribeiro do Campo....1923 it was renamed Nova Lima and is not far from Belo Horizonte,around 20km or 1/2 of an hours drive, hilly and green enviroment. great fauna and flora in the forest of Nova Lima, the Serra do Curral surrounds the Town.
on an altitud of around 750m, with a very nice climate, pleasant summer and mild winters, though it rains quite often.
the urban landscape is build, curriously by the English in the 18th century.the process of iron was established by the English too and the Zig-Zag street one of the curiosities in Nova Lima
