This paper aims at the evaluation of cultural activity aspects from the 66 microregions of the state of Minas Gerais by creating a comparable index, the DPCA, and by detecting spatial patterns in this index using Exploratory Spatial Data Analysis (ESDA). To study the aspects of cultural activities we calculated the DPCA index using factorial analysis. The database used was the Basic Municipal Information developed by IBGE. The methodology enables the construction of a Development Potential of Cultural Activities (DPCA) index composed by three factors that allow us to evaluate the aspects of cultural activities: one comprising cultural activities and structure, one comprising means of access to culture and another comprising cultural management. Some conclusion that can be highlighted is the low result of the Development Potential of Cultural Activities (DPCA) for 64 from the 66 microregions. Regarding the ESDA, we find cultural clusters when the calculus are performed for PDAC individually and for a comparison with the GDP.
