    The work and legacy of Lucio Costa is crucial to the history of our country. So, visit est space and know the history behind the architect who built Brasilia is fantastic.

    Tells the story of the architect responsible for the pilot plan of Brasília. Also has a model of the time, project sketches and photos of the work. Has an interesting manuscript revealing that the architect was not afraid to speak the truth.

    History of the founding of the city. The model is beautiful, but is in need of restoration. The tactile model is a differential, as well as the lift which ensures accessibility.

    Emphasis on the model of Brasília in the space. Access the stairs at the Plaza of the three powers close to the SUPREME COURT.

    Very cool place, but I believe that this celebrity deserved a bigger space and more explanation of his grandiose project, telling the whole story of the creation of Brasília.

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.
