Attractions in Brasilia:

Viewpoint of the TV Tower + Feirinha - Make the viewpoint of the TV Tower, which hangs 75 meters above the Monumental Axis, its first stop in the Brazilian tourist. At the foot of the Tower there is a handicraft and food fair with botequins serving typical dishes from various Brazilian regions
City Tour - In less than two hours, the bus descends the Esplanade of the Ministries, stops at the Cathedral, passes through Congress and Itamaraty, stops at Praça dos Três Poderes, crosses the JK Bridge and returns to Alvorada Palace (with stop) and JK Memorial.
South Lake Jetty - On the bank of Paranoá opposite the Pilot Plan, this is the nicest stretch on the edge of Lake Paranoá. You can walk along the boardwalk, enjoying the movement of boats, sailboats and stand-up surfers; bars and restaurants (such as Mormaii Surf Bar, Bierfass Brewery, Northeastern Manzuá and Japa Soho) complete the structure, spaced apart. The feeling is of being in a park, not an open-air mall. The place is frequented at dusk and at weekends.
Cathedral - Even with its disfigured interior - originally, it was not painted -, the Cathedral reigns as Niemeyer's number 1 work in Brasilia. Inside, the glazed Cathedral, which seems to offer itself to the Heavens, thrills even atheists (like the architect).

Planalto Palace - If the Alvorada can only be visited midweek, in compensation the Planalto, where the presidents dispatch, is available for the weekend tourist.
