The Three Powers Square is the heart of Brasilia since the development of the city spread from here. It is surrounded by the National Congress, the Presidential Offices, and Supreme Court. There are several sculptures in the square in memoriam to the city's founding, an diorama of the city under the square, the giant flag pole (largest permenently flying flag in the world), and the Panteão da Pátria (a museum honoring heroes of Brazil) with a permanently lit torch on a structure looking over the square. If you are there on the first Sunday of the month at 10 am, the Brasilian military conducts a formal flag changing ceremony that rotates among the various services.

Nice place situated right between the supreme court, placio de planalto and the congress buildings, a ideal place to take photos of your trip to Brasilia. Recommend to all.

This is the central square of the "Monumental Brasilia". Surrounded by the Presidential Palace, the Congress and the Federal Supreme Court, some of the most beautiful buildings in town, it is definitely a must-see in Brasilia.

It is impossible to miss it, since it is the heart of the city. The architecture, Oscar Niemeyer at his best, is to be admired. A pity it is not well cared for as it deserves.
