Campo Grande: Attractions and more...
The main attraction of Campo Grande is the Dom Bosco Museum, which houses one of the most complete collections of the natural history and native culture of Brazil. The São José parish is frequently visited for its beautiful stained glass windows. It also worth seeing the Igreja Matriz de Santo Antônio, the first Church constructed in Campo Grande.
The city’s first building, Morada dos Bais (called Pensão Pimentel previously), a Neo-classical structure is now a cultural centre. Nearby is the Palácio da Cultura Popular, which hosts conventions and performances by regional artists. The Casa do Artesão (Craft House) displays the artwork and handicrafts of local craftsmen.
There is also the Parque dos Poderes, an ecological reserve where most of the administrative bodies of the city are located.
If visiting in the months of January or February, do attend the Campo Grande Film Festival.
