Visit it both close by and from the distance. Enjoy it by daylight, at sunset and at night. From the east and from the west shores. Mingle with the populace on the west side. See it from far away by the Alvorada Palace or by the Digital TV tower!

Almost all achitects want to design a bridge before they die and Alexandre Chan came up with a wonderful design with the collaboration of Mario Verde the structural engineer.

Its the newest bridge of Brasilia, and the most beautiful one. You can across it by car, by foot or by bike. The view is incredible, cause you see the sky's reflection on lake and the city in front of you.

Nice view of the Paranoá Lake. A breath-taking sunset. (Especially if you have the right company). The JK bridge is one of Brasilia's post-cards.

It is as beautiful as people say, but... Its maintenance has been neglected so much that... Its painting is never nice and sometimes there are a few roles which prevent some of its lanes to be open for regular traffic...

One of Brasilia's monuments. Beautiful bridge, with people exercising/running on its sides and the nice Paranoa Lake on the scenario.

This bridge serves the city beautifully. It connects is very nicely, and suits the architecture very well. I always enjoy driving over it.

Delightful modern bridge, very functional also. Particularly attractive as one drives towards it and the arches appear to move, apparently to resemble waves. Yet another Brasilia work of art.
