Legend has it that there was a powerful indigenous tribe who were almost extinct during a big flood. A couple of tribe members survived by climbing the tallest tree in the area, which they called Acaiaca. That is where the tallest building in Belo Horizonte gets its name from, and honors the legend with two large faces sculpted on its façade. The Acaiaca is 120 meters tall and was built in 1943 in the Art Deco style predominant then. The building itself is occupied mostly by solicitors' offices and doctors and dentists' surgeries. You can take the lift up to the 30th floor and from then climb the stairs to the rooftop for breathtaking views over the city.
