An icon of the Brasilia skyline, this is a must. At the bottom is a market, where we wandered until it rained. Despite is soviet, metal massiveness, it has a charm to it that demands appreciation.

The tower offers 360 degree views over Brasilia. The view down the mall towards the monuments is very special but aside from that there's nothing particularly spectacular. Nonetheless, it helps put the orientation of the city into perspective. It's well worth an hour of one's time.

I visited the tower with a group of Brazilian friends and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The tower is 224 metres high and from below the viewing platform looks like something out of the Star Wars movies. The queue was reasonable and the view from the platform 75 metres above ground level (accessed by lift) is well worth the queuing. The... More

Yes, it's just a TV tower. But you can take an elevator to the top of this one and get some great photos of the city from a perspective you can't get anywhere else. It's well worth at least one visit. Oh and did I mention the tasty food stalls at the base of the antenna? At one stall there's... More

What do you expect about a traditional TV Tower? So, this is the tower - nothing more than a lot of iron and antenas.

I was rushing to take in what I could before leaving Brasilia after a business visit and went to the large handicrafts fair at the foot of the Torre on a Saturday morning. Literally hundreds of stalls with really interesting craftwork from jewellery to kitchen embroidered ware to stones. Could have spent longer. Sorry that I did not go up... More

The TV Tower is on top of a hill and offers a good view on Brasilia. It is not at the top of the tower but it is a free elevator ride to an open platform. From there, you cannot really see the shape of the city but you get a good view of most landmarks as far as the... More

To clearly see and understand the beauty of oscar niemeyer's vision of the city, one has to go up the tower. The aeroplane structure of the city landscape is only understood once you see it from here. They have a beautiful cafe on the earlier floor where a brazilian coffee or a beer is a must. The tower entrance is... More

There is a free elevator that takes you to the viewing platform approximately one-third of the way up. The view is fully panoramic, and you can see the satellite towns that are perhaps 20km away. It will only pass 10-15 minutes of your time, and it's free.
