    This sanctuary, which from the outside looks unattractive and entirely material, inside becomes an abstract space defined by the blue light of the stained glass windows.

    You can go and make a barbecue on the special area for this. You take your bike and ride or just run if you like, and after the exercise stop by and have a beer. There is a kart ring where you can compete. There are many enternaing options at the park.

    With enlarged photos & various memorabilia items on "two floors", to see in this building is quite a "thorough coverage" of the life of the 21st president of Brazil who was also the founder of this capital city: from his childhood days in Belo Horizonte to his days as a medical student (when he also worked as a telephone operator) to his presidential campaign in the 1950's (for which besides the photos is also a small model of the plane that took him to his campaign stops) to his time of presidency (when he met with such well-known leaders as the American presidents Eisenhower & Kennedy and also Fidel Castro of Cuba) to the time of exile in the 1960's (when I suppose he lived in Paris as seen in the photo of him standing in front of the Eiffel Tower); and also great apart from those numerous large photos & pieces of memorabilia is something much larger which is his "office replica" (on the back side of the first floor); and also be sure not to miss (on the second floor) some of the clothes of him & his wife's (who as the sign says was a "fashionable lady" during her time as the First Lady).

    And yes, apart from a great deal to see inside, right outside the building are: a "meticulously-maintained" lawn which goes all around the building, reflecting pools both on the front side & the back side of the grounds (right outside the building), a column with his statue on top on the front side, a "couple statue" of him & his wife on the lawn on the front side, and some big soccer balls made of metal or such (but not solid-faced and instead with big openings on their faces) also on that spacious front lawn.

    It was really at the end of the "long day" starting with the TV Tower (closed for renovation at the time so only to see from below) followed by just about a 10-minute walk to Museu Nacional (with scant "modern art" displays seen inside and so where really the exterior of a "big dome" is pretty much all there was to see) & just nearby Catedral Metropolitana (a modern-designed one with a "big & beautiful" ceiling inside) followed by about a 20-minute walk to Caixa Cultural Center (with mostly paintings on display of temporary nature but pretty nice to see an "exhibit of doors" in one room) followed by a short taxi ride to Santuario Dom Bosco (with a "stunning blue" interior for some nice general pics although with nothing elaborate apart from those beautiful sides) followed by another short taxi ride to this site where I initially thought it would be just a quick visit for a memorial shrine or such but which just turned out to be a lot more (a nice "memorial museum" to learn about the life of a great man!).

    An awesome place to visit, and very popular with good reason. When we arrived before the gates opened, there were already cars lined up waiting to get in. The restaurant and the area around it are very busy on weekends. Hikers and birders will enjoy the distant areas of the garden, too.

    One significant detraction is a large glass room in the middle of the garden housing cactuses which I understand is a death trap for birds who do not see the glass and fly into it and break their necks. It's hard to understand why a place which does so much to attract and support the native flora and fauna would build something like this.

    The cathedral is one of the most representative icons of the city. It is striking for its small size and spatiality in contrast to the desolation of the urban space that surrounds it.

    If you really want to feel a bit of what the environment where Brasilia has landed on is lke, the Brazilian savana known as "Cerrado", you must pay a visit. There are few options for meals in there, two wonderful natural water pools (the pools are not naturally formed themselves though), and very nice tracks for those who enjoying walking or riding around. Inexpensive and beautiful. One can even see, in less crowed days, some of the species that live in the park, such as monkeys, tons of birds or even the "guará" wolf (no, really, I have seen them a couple of times).

    This place is open for 24 hours to start with. There were 3 staff members who welcomed me at the entrance early in the morning and one lady explained in English so that I can make the best of my time and visit.

    When you go through the labyrinth, at the end you are standing under the crystal. You can sit on the chairs on both side before or after. I was surprised that there were service as well. This is the only time when you hear something, the rest in silence.

    Very peaceful and unique experience.

    I saw this bridge as part of a city tour arranged by my hotel with Rainha da Paz Turismo. Our English-speaking guide, Iraquemes, had a rich knowledge of all the places we stopped, a friendly manner, and a willingness to answer all kinds of questions. This bridge was designed to mimick skipping stones over Lake Paranoa. We didn't stay long, but enjoyed seeing the span and see locals out enjoying the lake- fishing, sailing, and just being outdoors.

    With rotating, participatory exhibits, an excellent shop and cafe, this is a stop on every visit we make to Brasilia. Many child-friendly features.

    What a beautiful place to be found here with a huge complex and extraordinary moment to spend away to see this one. Loved it and miss this place, we hardly don't want to leave from this place. Be back in the near future.

    This palace by Oscar Niemeyer establishes a mirror dialogue between classical and modern architecture. The landscape that surrounds it, designed by Roberto Burle-Marx, is marvelous.

    A few elements of great expressive force make up the great icon of Oscar Niemeyer that represents the legislative power of the country.
