This is one of the tallest towers of its kind in the world, the view from the top a sensational panorama. Street fairs take place at the base, mostly on weekends.

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

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.

The second best function for transmission towers surely is city sightseeing! Ironically, first thing I noticed while up there was the New Digital Tv Tower :p

The line moves fast...once on the observation deck you will have many photo opportunities. The views are just as amazing as the city. Near by is the waterfall, the I love Brasilia sign and plenty of great little shops.

This is a great place to see Brasilia and a bit of how the city is laid out. You can see downtown as well as the seat of government in the distance. The view is free but parking can be a bit touch and go depending on the time of day and the number of visitors. The fountains in front... More

There are great views of all of Brasilia from the tower, so since it's free, it's worth going up. There are also shops and vendors around the base, and it's not far from the park, some hotels, and a mall.

You must wait in line for the elevator that will take you to the observation deck. From there you have a reasonable panoramic view of the city. But the view is not much better that you have from the top floor of some of the hotels.
