    Architecture

    by boasnovas Updated Jan 20, 2014

    Favorite thing: If your interest is architecture it worth a visit to Brasilia and meet Lucio Costa Athos Bulhões and Oscar Niemayer´s work. But, take your time and guide visit all the official buildings inside to appreciate it.

    Long Distances ...

    Brasilia

    Favorite thing: Since the sights in Brasilia are far away from each other (the distances are longer than it seems on maps or pictures), renting a car might be a good idea. All Brazilian friends recommended it.
    We didn't do so and tried to see the city on foot. It's possible (plan at least two days to see walk all the main sights) but it's quite exhausting. Be sure to bring sun block with you and use it even when it's cloudy. The cities altitude is more than 1.000 m - the sun will get you painfully!

    Part of  National Congress

    Favorite thing: Here you can make different strolls. Everything depends on who you really are.
    For being the capital of power, it is interesting to know the "palaces" and monuments, like the Cathedral, Alvorada´s Palace, etc.
    However, most different and exciting it´s the architecture of the city. Therefore, these strolls are not THAT boring...
    Ah... I cannot forget talking to you about the natural beauties: the typical fauna and flora, to few meters of the center. Without speaking in waterfalls and the ecological tracks, that are several!!!

    Fondest memory: Without ANY doubt, the prettiest thing in Brasilia is the sunset, in tones of orange, yellow, rose, blue and lilac... Believe me: you´ve never saw anything like that...

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Hey, Brasilia is cool! It's modern, vibrant, its wide roads offer peace, comfort and speed!

    It has one of the largest number of Olympic-sized swimming pools per capita in the world!

    When visiting Brasilia, YOU MUST visit:

    1) ACADEMIA DE TENIS, for a movie, leisure of a good meal at 'Francisco Restaurant'

    2) the city SHOPPING CENTRES, such as Parkshopping, Patio Brasil, Brasilia Shopping.

    3) the TV TOWER, for spectacular views of the centre of administration buildings and local weekend market!

    Fondest memory: Best friend Cris and Ricardo impersonating Angels to help people cross the extremely wide avenues of Eixao Norte!

    I love Eixao, one of the most exciting places to be on a Sunday!

    Favorite thing: Brasília, the country’s recently built capital is a great tourist attraction. Niemeyer designed it in a futuristic style, with gardens and wide avenues. Located on a plateau, it has a dry, temperate climate, pleasant throughout the year. Sightseeing tours of the city include a visit to the National Theater, built like a pyramid; the Congress Plaza ; and many other interesting spots.

    Palacio do Planalto

    Favorite thing: On the right, mirroring itself in the water, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs: it is commonly named Itamaraty.

    Don't lose that address!

    by psquared Written Nov 8, 2002

    Favorite thing: Every street looks the same. Make sure to keep the address where you are going and hand that to your driver, unless your Portuguese is good.
