What you'll do

Do you know that "Now makes sense" feeling? That is what we will experience.

It has happened to me to travel and come back with good photos, souvenirs, and good culinary experiences. But aside from spending good money on all this, there was an absence to really know the history of that city :(

Brasilia is the capital of Brazil, and what we will do in this experience is to find meaning in its history through its architecture. And so enhance your experience with our heritage, and inspire you about the importance and power of our history.

We started with a breakfast at Cafe Ernesto. The place specializes in specialty coffees and artisan breads. There we will discover the stories of Juscelino, Lucio Costa, Niemeyer and Burle Marx. These big names gave life to the city, which was planned and eventually created.

Next, we will walk through the main monuments such as Brasilia Cathedral Church, Esplanade of Ministries, Itamaraty Palace, National Congress, Planalto Palace, Superior Federal Court, Three Powers Square and OTHERS. What makes these places special is not only because they represent the political importance that Brasília has, but they express the best of modern architecture.

As Oscar Niemeyer said "You may or may not like the city, but you can never say that you have seen something like this" So, let's find out together? :)
Other things to note
-We have an Attention Agent. Seniors, Children, people with special needs and groups of more than 4 people, it is necessary to contact us first.
-If you speak English, you can participate by adding the translation agent

Fizemos um passeio único com a Márcia! Visitamos a Super Quadra Modelo, depois fomos de uber para a catedral e esplanada dos ministérios e andamos até a praça dos três poderes. Tudo isso com o dia chovendo em Brasília 😅 mas a Márcia nos forneceu guarda-chuvas e foi divertido. Muito bom ver a cidade por esse ângulo. Meus pais adoraram o passeio. Recomendo!

É muito interessante saber o que há por trás da concepção arquitetônica tanto da cidade como dos prédio.

The tour was very interesting. Marcia was my guide and the love for her city is contagious. It was incredible to see the city through her eyes and admire the great architecture.
