Brasilia and the West Sights


Palácio da Alvorada

Palácio da Alvorada Review

Open to the public on Wednesdays, the president's official residence was Niemeyer's first project in the new capital and is located at the edge of Lago Paranoá. Niemeyer used delicate slanting support columns, here clad in white marble. The name of the building translates as Palace of the Dawn, and its design is suitably inspired. Get here early to avoid a long wait for a guided tour (Portuguese only).
