Overview
This is a unique experience, as you will have the opportunity to walk through the original area of Belo Horizonte, where the city was originally built and from where it was developed to what it is currently. During the tour, we will visit several important points of interest of the city and in all of them, the historical and cultural importance of each location will be explained. We will make a geographical, historical, cultural and architectural contextualization of each place we go. In the end, visitors will have a much broader view of the city of Belo Horizonte (and the state of Minas Gerais) than they used to have previously. After just over 3.5 hours of this walking tour, visitors will have more historical and cultural knowledge about the city than most locals.

Silvio's tour is excellent, and in my opinion necessary to properly understand this interesting city which although less than 150 years old, features a number of different architectural styles. It's amazing how much more you see when it is pointed out to you. Silvio speaks

Last Saturday we were shown around by Sílvio through his city. In addition to the expertise of Sílvio and his knowledge about history, old and new buildings, he was also a perfect host. The tour was supposed to take 3.5 hours, but this went on for an hour without us noticing.
