In 2010 the city of Brasilia, which was planned by Lucio Costa in the shape of an airplane and predominantly enriched with impressive buildings by Oscar Niemeyer, celebrated its 50th jubilee. The megatropolis of Sao Paulo and the fantastic coastal city of Rio de Janeiro both stand in rich contrast to the city planned on the drawing board as well as being rich in Modern architectural treasures and contemporary highlights. Ouro Preto, a unique baroque gem, adds to the appeal of this diverse country.

Rio de Janeiro — Brilliant Architecture and Sensational Natural Experiences
Belo Horizonte, Ouro Preto and Mariana — Heading Up Country
Brasilia — Oskar Niemeyer’s Sensual Realm
Sao Paulo — In The Thick of the Concrete Jungle
