Fodor's Review

If you're interested in the mystical, occult, and esoteric, Brasilía is the place to be. Valley of the Dawn was one of the first of the city's so-called cult communities, and is well prepared to receive visitors. The ellliptical temple at the center of the compound is one of the attractions. The religious community was founded in 1969 by Neiva Zelaya, a onetime truck driver who reportedly had extrasensory powers.
