Brasilia

Summary

Promoted by UNESCO to Cultural Patrimony of Mankind, Brazil`s capital was constructed between 1956 and 1960, having a good climate, an exotic architecture and a mystique atmosphere. Brasília`s temperature is very pleasant all over the year and its beautiful sunsets are frequently seen. The capital Master Plan (“Plano Piloto”) was conceived by the leading urban planner Lucio Costa and its major buildings were designed by world famous architect Oscar Niemeyer. This city also keeps a little bit of Brazil’s History, having museums, libraries, files, monuments and palaces. 2 great Brasília`s attractions based on Oscar Niemeyer projects are the new Leonel de Moura Brizola National Library (opened on 2006), which is part of the Republic Cultural Complex, and the Metropolitan Cathedral (which is 40-meter high, having 16 concrete arcs surrounded by a mirror of water). Despite its intense urban life, the Federal District is also a rural place, where one may enjoy wonders of nature at resorts, trails, caverns, waterfalls and the typical pastime of small towns (fishing and bathing in the river). Hosting the Federal Government and Embassies from all countries, Brasília is also a unique place because of its scientific, political and cultural discussions.
