As a tribute to the urban planner who masterminded Brasilia, Lucio Costa, this underground complex underneath the city square contains a full-scale model of the city and displays the city’s blueprints. At Espaco Lucio Costa, you can read Costa’s original ideas for the project (in Portugese and English), and see the reproductions and enlarged copies of his original submission of proposed city plan that won him the competition.

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.

  • Very nice model of brasilia
  • Belo local
  • 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.
