Renowned for its modernist lines and futuristic design, Brasilia is a study in urban planning and the only city built in the 20th century to be counted among UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. Where only five years before its inception there was desert, now there are innovative buildings and imaginative monuments, ranging from the hyperboloid Cathedral of Brasilia to the lunar-esque Complexo Cultural da Republica to the glass-box Palacio da Alvorada.

Another structure by award-winning architect Oscar Niemeyer, this landmark Cathedral features stunning interior glasswork.
You enter from below in this wonderful Cathedral. It is 40 meters from the floor to the ceiling and on the edge you can hear a person one fourth of the way around the building even if he whispers. There is no charge for entry and on a sunny day it is glorious

I'll talk about Pontão do lago sul. The place is very good, the food is excellent. The place is neighbouring in Lago Sul. But if I were to give a grade it would be eigth.

If you have time and you want to see a place outside the usual touristic route, Santuario Don Bosco is the right place. It would astonish you with his blue colors and calm majesty.
If you come from Torino... well... then it is a must see!

We were lucky enough to catch two Exhibitions as well as visit the CCBB's museum which has an exhibition on the history of the bank. One of the Exhibitions was of contemporary Brazilian art and the other a marvellous retrospective of Cicero Dias, the Brazilian artist who spent most of his working life in Paris. Although the Cultural Centre is not so central it is fairly easy to get to and entrance is free. The Centre also has places to eat as well as ample parking space. Reserve a whole morning or afternoon.

The view of Brasília from this place is amazing, I'd say it's really worth a visit. But if you're a tourist, I'm afraid the only options to go there are hiring a car or spending all your money in a taxi. As far as I know there is no public transportation available to this site.
If you manage to get there, you will be able to see from close range, as a bonus, the bizarre Digital TV Tower, one of the last works by the prolific architect Oscar Niemeyer.

This articificial lake is polluted so avoid swimming or extracting fish from it. Other hazards include being drowned by a fast moving craft (jetski, speedboat etc); drivers are sometimes inebriated or high. Otherwise the view is spectacular (JK bridge etc), especially at night. A very nice place to go on the edge of the lake is the Pontão, a kind of entertainment hub, for restaurants etc. A bit pricey but worth it for the occasional splurge.

Designed by Oscar Niemeyer and inaugurated in 1970, Itamaraty Palace is the headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. During the design conception, Ambassador Wladimir Murtinho was in charge of informing the architect about the needs that had to be addressed. The partnership was so successful that, up to this day, no structural changes have been made to the building for they have not been necessary. The structural calculation, which allowed for the construction of an impressive main hall, free of columns, was carried out by engineer Joaquim Cardoso. Itamaraty Palace was conceived with the purpose of introducing Brazil to foreign visitors; therefore, it was built only with national materials and their halls harbor works by Brazilian or naturalized Brazilian artists exclusively, such as Athos Bulcão, Alfredo Volpi, Bruno Giorgi, Frans Krajcberg, Franz Weissmann, Maria Martins, Mary Vieira, Iberê Camargo, Ione Saldanha, Rubem Valentim, Sérgio de Camargo, and Tomie Ohtake.
My favorite building in Brasilia´s Esplanada. It´s beautiful on the outside and if you take a tour of the building itself you´ll see some amazing art, divine staircases and all of the wonders that make Oscar Niemeyer Brazil´s most famous architect. Call ahead to make sure of the days and times of the tours.

This temple was designed by Oscar Niemeyer (who designed a lot in Brasilia) and constructed in 100 days, in order of the wife of the President JK. It was build in favour of their daughter to help her to fight her desease.

Many visit the site of President Kubitschek’s memorial, featuring a tastefully inscribed plaque in honor of the beloved leader.

Casual little club apparently featuring mostly domestic talent. We had a combination of very accomplished quartet and quintet for the night. Good refreshments and snacks available and the night finished quietly as a counterpoint to the political turmoil across the road as many locals expressed their condemnation against their president and her predecessor.
