This is in the centre of Brasilia along with all the government building This one stands out with the "chocolate box soldiers" in their quaint uniforms juxtaposed against the concrete building. Quite a contrast

Go for the view and architectural experience. Although you can not visit the inner building, the view and architecture is very interesting. Also, the sunset there is very nice as it "lights" the building up in beautiful colours.

One of Brasilia's icons, Palácio do Planalto is the Brazilian President's office (her or his official residence is at Palácio da Alvorada). Guided visits available on weekends, which provide nice amount of info.

The city is well designed and with all the political issues going on in Brasil, visiting the government buildings was a must.

This building forms part of a collection of building spread over a big square. Again a stunning building but then again we are admirers of Niemeyer's architecture which was the sole reason for our visit to Brasilia.

This building, designed by Oscar Niemeyer, is the Working Palace of the President. It is 24 hours a day guarded by 2 guards which do exercise every half hour a funny protocol. It is located at the Square of Three Powers.

Nothing special, Just some more of Niemeyer 'curves without being practical'. You may need special arrangments to get inside.
