Description

If you are into architecture or urban planning, you have to visit the Brazilian federal capital, Brasilia (in the Central-West region of the country). The city was designed by Lucio Costa and Oscar Niemeyer in 1956, and formally became Brazil’s capital in 1960. It was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. The city is divided into numbered blocks and sectors for specific activities, and from above resembles a butterfly or a plane. The utopian city planning and use of modernist architecture on a large scale has been both praised and criticized. Whilst exploring the architecture of the city, make sure not to miss the Eixo Monumental – an open area downtown hosting many monuments and government buildings, including the almost abstract National Congress Building – and the Palacio da Alvorada on Lake Paranoa, the official residences of the Brazilian President. But it’s not just about buildings and open spaces, and Brasilia boasts a lively and varied cultural scene, as well as a diverse and renowned cuisine. Head to the Asa Sul district for some of the finest dining in the city.
