Brazil - Brasilia & Goias (PDF Chapter)
This is the Brasília & Goiás chapter from Lonely Planet’s Brazil guidebook.
Brasília was conceived as a workable, utopic answer to modern, urban chaos. As Brazil’s seat of government, bureaucrats rule, but a thriving city can be found beneath the uber-organization. Overlooked by many tourists, picturesque Goiás is easy to get lost in for a few weeks.
- beat the heat in a barrage of waterfalls around colonially cool Pirenópolis
- discover Brasília’s futuristic architecture at night, when the Praça dos Trés Poderes takes on an otherworldly glow
