Brazil // Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo //

Around Belo Horizonte

The most popular trips out from the capital are to the cidades históricas, but there are several other sites that also warrant a visit: to the southwest is Inhotim, a wonderful contemporary-art centre set amidst stunning landscape, while to the east, lying beyond the nearest of the cidades históricas, Sabará, is the beautiful Parque Natural do Caraça.
