Brasilia was planned and designed in 1960 as the new capital of Brazil. It has a modern and unique landscape and layout. There is plenty of interesting architecture to see, much of it built by Oscar Niemeyer under orders from the president at the time. A tour of this fascinating city will also give a much greater understanding of the history of Brazil as a whole.
Private bathroom and balcony, cable TV, safety deposit box, hairdryer, minibar, free Wi-Fi, gym, spa, outdoor swimming pool, air- conditioning and room and laundry services.
A tour of the Brasilia’s principle landmarks is the main attraction of any visit there. A typical itinerary might include the Esplanade dos Ministérios, Cathedral, Itamaraty Palace, National Congress, Três Poderas Square, Alvorada Palace, TV Tower, Gemas Museum, Memorial JK and Santuário Dom Bosco.
Brasilia is a year round destination, but is hottest between November and May. A stay in Brasilia combines well with visiting the Wolf Valley Camp in the Parnaiba Headwaters National Park which is only open between July and August.
