Tons of sidewalk cafes, coffee shops and bars. Street fairs are common on weekends, this photo is of an Italian food and wine fair. Good place to hang on a weekend or after work.

Savassi was a place to visit in the eighties. Nice shops, very fashionable and nice bars. Today, Savassi is just a neighborhood with no importance in Belo Horizonte. There are few good restaurants and hotels only.

I am married to a Brazilian and have bought and sold apartments in savassi for the past 40 years. Savassi is where it's at: fantastic restaurants, great to walk around, great shopping malls and it's just a beautiful town.

This is a nice place to go on sunny days. You can take a walk with the kids or visit some of the museums that we have around the square.
