In the first pillar, we are represented by the dinosaurs that inhabited here millions of years ago and that open the doors to ecological, educational, scientific, and adventure tourism. Uberaba's geological heritage is highlighted worldwide with the important paleontological findings of our region. We support the second pillar in the relevance of the Zebu cattle, which arriving in our city developed part of the economy and our culture. The Zebu marks the power of Uberaba in the world agribusiness, symbolizes event, cultural, and business tourism. Represented by the icon Chico Xavier, in the third pillar, we have the strength, diversity, and significance of local religiosity. Sumptuous churches, religious festivals, Afro-Brazilian culture, and the strength of spiritism coexist in harmony and are part of the religious tourism trend.

In addition to these three giants, Uberaba has several beautiful Catholic churches, eight museums addressing different cultural and historical aspects of our city, ancient mansions protected by the public authorities to preserve the history and evolution of the city.
