Inhotim Art Park, Minas Gerais Brazil
If you’re heading to Brazil for the Rio Olympics but want something more than sport or a beach, then Inhotim is the place for you. Located fairly close to Belo Horizonte, the 5000-acre tropical garden features 500 pieces of stunning artwork. Unlike a traditional gallery, they’re are set among lush vegetation and many of the works are interactive.
When to go
The weather in Belo Horizonte is generally pretty dry and warm, although avoiding the summer months (Dec-Feb) is probably a good idea because they tend to be rainy. Try to visit during the week to escape the crowds – apart from Wednesdays when it’s free.
Who to take with you
An art enthusiast. Although you could also have a great time solo.
Most likely to bump into…
Some tropical animals and 1400 different species of palm tree…
With so many amazing artworks it’s hard to choose but Olafur Eliasson extremely contemporary Sonic Pavilion is a sensory experience not to be missed.
An essential you need to bring with you?
