Built in 1898, the French-style Liberdade Palace is the former headquarters of the Minas Gerais government. Today, it is the main venue of the Cultural Complex Praça da Liberdade. Of note are the gardens by Paul Villon, the Louis XV–style banquet room, the main staircase brought from Belgium, the paintings in Noble Hall, and a panel by Antônio Pereira.
