Quartel General do Exercito, Brasilia

(4.5/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Home of the Brazilian Army’s headquarters, training facilities, and military parades, Quartel General do Exercito is also one of Oscar Niemeyer’s stunning architectural masterpieces. In front of the huge, concrete office building, you will see a large, white, freeform structure and thin, needle-like monument, which represent, respectively, the hilt and blade of Duque de Caxais, the army’s patron. There is also the grey, zigzagged Teatro Pedro Calmon, in the lobby of which you can visit the permanent exhibition of military equipment, uniforms, and old photos; the auditorium itself plays host to a full calendar of lectures and events that are open to the public. Across the road from the complex, you can enjoy a walk around the beautiful, green park designed by Roberto Burle Marx.

  • The entire area is monitored by military personnel but that doesn't bother (because it is an important area) with military facilities, accommodation and residences. The excess noise is not allowed which makes this region a good place for sightseeing as the squares, the vast grassy areas, the shell, the Pedro Calmon theater.

  • Stately architecture, beautiful! One of my favorite places. Worth a stop by to understand the grandeur and beauty.

  • The architectural style is not to my taste, but I like the Nice square in front, with some stone sculptures in the form of crystals.

  • Lugar muito bom
  • Muito bonito
  • Apesar de ser um quartel general ele faz parte da lista de monumentos da cidade de Brasília. O projeto arquitetônico do prédio é de Oscar Niemeyer e o projeto paisagístico é de Roberto Burle Marx. Existe também uma estrutura em forma de concha que simboliza o punho da espada de Duque de Caxias. Vale a pena conferir.
  • E aqui que faço o alistamento?
  • Um belo lugar para trabalhar.
