Tourism in Brasilia
The reason for the creation of Brasilia was to give an alternative location to the already-crowded cities of Salvador de Bahia, Sao Paulo and Rio, and to create a significant population centered in the countrys interior, with the intent that people would move to a region neglected under colonization. Because of its unique location in a region of forests and wilderness, the climate of Brasilia is tropical, giving a specific character to the city that is absent from all other Brazilian metropolises. Brasilia has warm temperatures throughout the year, but (except during summer) also experiences heavy rainfall.
It is in Brasilia where the countrys main seats of companies and public services are located, imparting to its surroundings a uniquely contemporary feel. In addition, it is a place where architecture and urbanism are emphasized. To view the modernity and the sculpture of its buildings, any visitor to this city should stop by the Cultural Complex of the Republic, the Cathedral of Brasilia dedicated to Our Lady Who Appeared, the National Congress, the Palace of the Plateau, the Palace of the Dawn, the Square of the Three Powers and the JK Bridge. Many other buildings, all of them modern, equip the city with a majestic air that is especially delightful for lovers of great architecture.
