    The Buriti Square is one of the sights of Brasília, although without shining, because that establishes your value is Cultural and historical to Brazil and to Brasília. Here's your story: the construction of Brasília, in 1959, when Israel Pinheiro Miner was the President of Novacap, he requested the Department of parks and gardens planted there a copy of the Buriti Palm tree, where it raised the Palace of Buriti. Your impulse was sought in the poem "Buriti", the illustrious poet and writer Alfonso Arinos de Mello Franco, your book "page At Backcountry. The poet in your Poem excerpts seem to predict, although in the distant future the emergence of a city. Let's take a look at excerpts from the Poem: "If you ever win this stop distant civilization, perhaps a big city stand in the field extensive that it's punch, old Buriti Perdido. .... So maybe, a lover of the early legends soul, a soul that has moved to love and poetry, not allowing your destruction, figures on a large square, as a monument extinct generations, a page always open a poem was not written, but that referve in the mind of each of the children of this land ". However, this Buriti transplanted not dying 10 years later, but was planted another in your place and built a square to round your named Buriti Square. In 1985, the GDF has published by Decree the tipping this Buriti Palm. However in 1992 this tree suffered the blows of an axe vandal, but the parks and gardens Department acted quickly by saving this Buriti alive until today. The Buriti Square is not a notorious tourist point and also has little movement on weekends. Situated in the Monumental axis West is surrounded by the Palace of Buriti, Court of Auditors of the DF and the Legislative Chamber. On weekdays its parking lots are always full because the servers of these organ usually Park there. There are also moments where the servers of the GDF are there events to their claims filling the square. In the square have mirrors of water, fountain and flowerbeds that enhance because the concrete floor. Buriti Palm tree is today surrounded by protection and well anchored to prevent your downfall. By your side are fixed in concrete, the plates that refer to your creation and historical dates. At the other end of the Eixo Monumental lies the beautiful Plaza of the three powers surrounded by the Presidential Palace, the Supreme Court of the Union and the National Congress who steal our attention by the relevance of your bold and modern architecture, recognized worldwide, postcard from Brasilia However, to me this square adds sentimental value given to three factors: first, I worked in the annex of the Buriti Palace more than 20 years and the room of my Board I accompanied the move the square at any time; -Second, in 1984 the Federal District Government received my first award "Buriti Medal" which was delivered in formal sitting held in this square. -Third, I'm a descendent of the family Mansour of Paracatu-MG where the renowned poet and writer Alfonso Arinos de Mello Franco is the author of the poem "Buriti Perdido", poem that was always recited at parties in my family, in times of my childhood.

    The building of the Palace of Buriti follows more or less the architectural pattern of ministerial buildings of the Esplanade, that as regards style, white color, but orthogonal differs organically because it is a large Palace and many halls, next to a set of function rooms He has behind him a spike of about 20 floors, where the Offices of the Federal District Government , has a good parking lot in your back, while your front, construction of central Monumental axis of Brasília, there are only empty spaces and landscaped lawns, in front of which we have the Palace of Justice of DF. To your left side is the beautiful building of the Court of Auditors of the DF Thing to some degree surreal, in Taguatinga exist ready da silva and Manuel a huge administrative Complex GDF ready pair be used, but totally unoccupied

    Administrative center of the Federal Capital, there is no attraction for tourists, but the statue of Romulus and Remus with the she-Wolf, on the outside. Besides, you just go for the job.

    If you have a meeting set to be at least half an hour looking for places to park ... the place is always crowded and doesn't have enough slots. The good part is that the public transport passes at the door!

Where to stay in Brasilia

Choosing where to stay during your trip to Brasilia can be somewhat difficult. Due to the city's distinctive layout and lack of a historical "center," accommodations have developed in clusters. By far the best range of options surrounds the distinctive green space of Jardim Burle Marx, in the city's two planned hotel districts. You can also find a good selection of lodgings around Vila Planalto, the city's designated political district, which sits not far from Brasilia's main lake. Wherever you decide to stay, make sure it's within reasonable distance of a metro station or bus stop--you'll want good access to public transport in order to easily navigate the city.
