Brasilia was built to be the federal capital, seat and chambers of the government.
The architectural and urban planning was conducted by two professionals globally acclaimed: the architect Oscar Niemeyer, who designed the great buildings and great monuments, and urban planner Lucio Costa, who distributed buildings, streets and spaces in an admirable harmonious way.
These aspects, the Political, the Architectural and the Urban are today the main attractions of Brasilia.
It’s hard not to be impressed by the grandeur of ‘Praça dos Três Poderes’ Square. Even those who are less politically engaged can feel the power emanating from the buildings that surround the square: the Presidential Palace, the National Congress and the Supreme Court.
And so it is to visit other political institutions, such as the Palace of Justice, the Foreign Ministry, the Bank of Brazil, the Dawn, the Superior Courts; the imposing and grand appearance buildings that define the direction of the nation.
Unlike anything you’ve ever seen: that is the best way to start talking about Brasilia. The only modern city in the world to receive the title of Cultural Heritage of Humanity by Unesco is unique in every respect. The capital is much more than the political center of Brazil.
