#14 The Master Plan and Monumental Axis [Brasilia]

from 550.00

Lucio Costa’s master plan has the form of a cross and is also sometimes referred to as an airplane. The horizontal line - “the wings” - follows the artificial lake along a curve. These wings are reserved for the residential areas, while the ministries and government palaces are located in the airplane’s “body”. On our first day, we will visit these public buildings on the so-called “Monumental Axis”.

This tour includes transportation, it is available in 8 hours duration only. Hotel pickup in the center.
