Belo Horizonte is the capital of the state of Minas Gerais, located in the southeastern region of Brazil. It is the third-largest metropolis and is the third most important city of Brazil. Belo Horizonte (or 'Beagá', as it is also familiarly known from the sound of its initials 'BH' in Portuguese) has a population of over 2.4 million, reaching almost 5.4 million in the official Metropolitan Area. The first settlements in the region occurred in the early 1700s, but the city as it is known today was planned and constructed in the 1890s, in order to replace Ouro Preto as the capital of Minas Gerais. The city is well known for the contrast between contemporary and classical buildings, being the location of many modern Brazilian architectural icons, most notably the Pampulha Complex. In planning it, Brazilian engineers Aarão Reis and Francisco Bicalho found their inspiration in the town plan of Washington D.C. It is also becoming known for its internationally recognized programs in urban revitalization and food security, the latter of which has won several international accolades. In the area surrounding Belo Horizonte there are several parks. The 'Parque das Mangabeiras', located six kilometres south east from the city centre in the hills of the Serra do Curral, affords a view over the city. It has an area of 2.35 km2 (580 acres), of which 0.9 km2 (220 acres) is native forest. The 'Mata do Jambeiro' nature reserve extends over 912 hectares (2,250 acres), with vegetation typical of the Atlantic forest. More than one hundred species of birds inhabit the reserve, as well as ten different species of mammals. Belo Horizonte is a leading cultural center, with more than twenty universities, including the traditional Federal University UFMG and several high-ranked private Universities, several museums, numerous libraries, different kinds of private and public music concerts, a diverse traditional and modern cousin, big parks - located in such places as downtown and also in the outskirts -, beautiful plaza squares, numerous options for night life in bars, restaurants and night clubs and many other aspects of the city life that lead to arts and entertainment - including that fact that the city has a couple major soccer stadiums, a traditional soccer scene and also big sports centers and private athletic unions or clubs. The city is built on several hills and completely surrounded by mountains. The constant rising and falling of the streets sometimes makes navigation a bit tricky, but the wide avenues lined with trees are always easy guidelines. The Confins International Airport connects Belo Horizonte with many Brazilian cities and also operates international flights. Belo Horizonte is the distribution and processing center of a rich agricultural and mining region and the nucleus of a burgeoning industrial complex. Production is centred on steel, steel products, automobiles, and textiles. Gold, manganese, and gem stones mined in the surrounding region are processed in the city. Belo Horizonte is home to the Federal University of Minas Gerais.
