Photographer's Note

During my last visit to the capital of Minas Gerais , Belo Horizonte , I passed by a group of photographers in full practice session at the Praça da Liberdade (Freedom Square) . One of the girls was capturing details in one of the three doors of Memorial Minas Vale.

About the building : Highlight the cultural heritage and mining history as an important source of experiences and emotions - this is the proposed Memorial Minas Gerais - Vale . Located at the corner of Alameda Education with Gonçalves Dias Street , next to the Museum of the Mining and Metal , the space combines contemporary , popular and folkloric events , instigating the visitor to know a little more about the history and characteristics of the state .
Housed in the former building of the State Department of Finance, the building was designed by the architect of the New Capital Construction Commission , José de Magalhães . The building in the eclectic style adopted for all buildings designed by the Construction Commission , was inaugurated along with the new capital , in eighteen hundred and ninety-seven.

Have a nice weekend
