Nice place to see the traces of Newmeyer, one of the biggest architects of Brazil, as well many different artworks throughout the building.

This is a beautiful building and you definitely feel that it is still futuristic even though it was made over half a century ago. The walk around this area is worth it!

This is the official residence of the president of Brazil. It stands on a peninsula by the lake away from the city. This is the first building completed in Brasilia by Oscar Niemeyer. I wish I had been able to visit it inside. It is located in a lovely park and guarded officially as it should.

Palácio do planalto is a great place to visit. It is interesting and full of art master pieces and the architecture is brilliant. It is worth visiting the palace but I tell you it is not the most beautiful and intersting one there.

Like walking inside a spaceship, the planetarium overlooks the national stadium contrasting in its surreal outer worldliness with the stolidity of the stadium

I have been fascinated by the story of Brasilia since I was a small child. The amazing modern architecture does not disappoint, it's truly the only reason to go to Brasilia but a full day private tour is so worthwhile.
