Visit a 150-Year-Old Train Station, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil, Built in 1871
The Central Station of Belo Horizonte was the main railway station of the mining capital, located in the town center of Belo Horizonte, with the main entrance in Rui Barbosa Square next to Contorno Avenue. The station is famous both for hosting cultural movements and for the transit of trains to the city of Vitória, the capital city of Espírito Santo.
For a long time, the building would remain unoccupied, suffering from the ravages of time. At the beginning of the 2000s, the Museum of Arts and Crafts of Belo Horizonte project would be initiated by the Flávio Gutierrez Cultural Institute, in agreement with the CBTU. After a few years of work, the museum would be inaugurated at the cost of 18 million reais in December 2005.
The train station is popular among tourists looking to step back in time in Belo Horizonte.
