This building is the Plateau's Palace, the center of power in the federal capital of Brazil. The sky of the federal capital, Brasilia, is known for its beauty. In this photo I tried to make the union of these two beauties.

To have curiosity, look on the Internet the flag of Brazil. The flag has a yellow diamond with a blue circle inside. The sky was equal to flag this time.

Spanish

La Catedral Metropolitana Nossa Senhora Aparecida, más conocida como la Catedral de Brasilia, es la catedral metropolitana de la ciudad de Brasilia, capital de República Federal de Brasil. El diseño de la misma fue realizado por el arquitecto Oscar Niemeyer.

Proyectada por Oscar Niemeyer, su piedra fundacional fue emplazada el 12 de septiembre de 1958. Su estructura fue concluida el 31 de mayo de 1970 y sólo los 70 m de diámetro del área circular eran visibles.

Esta estructura hiperboloide está construida de hormigón, y pareciera que con su techo de vidrio se alzara abierto hacia el cielo. El proyecto de Niemeyer de la Catedral de Brasilia se basó en los hiperboloides de revolución, en donde las secciones son asimétricas. Por sí misma, esta estructura es el resultado de dieciséis columnas de hormigón ensambladas idénticas. Cada columna posee una sección hiperbólica y pesa 90 toneladas, el conjunto representa dos manos moviéndose hacia el cielo. La catedral posee cuatro campanas donadas por españoles residentes en Brasilia en 1968. Estas campanas fueron fundidas en Miranda de Ebro (España).

Son características las esculturas de los Evangelistas en el exterior y de los Ángeles en el interior, obras de Alfredo Ceschiatti.

Designed by Oscar Niemayer, this building is unique inside and out. The concrete-framed hyperboloid structure, appears with its glass roof to be reaching up, open, to heaven.

This is the roof from the inside, with massive angel statures suspended from it via metal poles.

English

The National Congress of Brazil (Portuguese: Congresso Nacional do Brasil) is the legislative body of Brazil's federal government.

Unlike regional legislative bodies – Legislative Assemblies and City Councils -, the Congress is bicameral, composed of the Federal Senate (the upper house) and the Chamber of Deputies (the lower house).

The Senate represents the 26 states and the Federal District. Each State and the Federal District has a representation of three Senators, who are elected by popular ballot for a term of eight years. Every four years, renewal of either one third or two-thirds of the Senate (and of the delegations of the States and the Federal District) takes place. When one seat is up for election in each State, each voter casts one vote for the Senate; when two seats are up for election, each voter casts two votes, and the voter cannot give his two votes for the same candidate, but, in elections for the renewal of two-thirds of the Senate, each party can present two candidates for election. The candidate in each State and the Federal District (or the first two candidates, when two thirds of the seats are up for election) who achieve the greatest plurality of votes are elected.

The Chamber of Deputies represents the people of each state, and its members are elected for a four-year term by a proportional representation. Unlike the Senate, the whole of the Chamber of Deputies is renewed every four years.

The Congress meets annually in its Brasília seat from 2 February to 27 July and from 1 August to 22 December.

Until recently, it was common for politicians to switch parties, and the proportion of congressional seats held by each party would often change. However, a decision of the Supremo Tribunal Federal has ruled that the seats belong to the parties and not to the politicians, and that one can only change parties and retain his seat in a very limited set of cases, so that now politicians who abandon the party for which they were elected face the loss of their Congressional seat.

Each house of the Brazilian Congress elects its President and the other members of its directing board from among its members.

The President of the Senate (currently Senator José Sarney) is ex officio the President of the National Congress, and in that capacity summons and presides over joint sessions, as well as over the joint services of both Houses.

However, the President of the Chamber (currently Marco Maia) is the third in the presidential line of succession, while the President of the Senate (and of Congress) ranks as fourth in line to the presidency of the Republic.

English

The Cathedral of Brasília (Catedral Metropolitana Nossa Senhora Aparecida- "Metropolitan Cathedral of Our Lady Aparecida" ) is the Roman Catholic cathedral serving Brasília, Brazil, and serves as the seat of the Archdiocese of Brasília. It was designed by Oscar Niemeyer, and was completed and dedicated on May 31, 1970. The cathedral is a hyperboloid structure constructed from 16 concrete columns, weighing 90 tons each

Description

In the square access to the cathedral, are four 3-meter (9.8 ft) tall bronze sculptures representing the four Evangelists created by sculptor Dante Croce in 1968. A 20-meter (66 ft) tall bell tower containing four large bells donated by Spanish residents of Brazil and cast in Miranda de Ebro also stands outside the cathedral, to the right as visitors face the entrance. At the entrance of the cathedral is a pillar with passages from the life of Mary, mother of Jesus, painted by Athos.

A 12-meter (39 ft) wide, 40-centimeter (16 in) deep reflecting pool surrounds the cathedral roof, helping to cool the cathedral. Visitors pass under this pool when entering the cathedral.

The baptistry is to the left of the entrance, and can be entered either from the cathedral or via a spiral staircase from the entrance plaza. The walls of the oval baptistery are covered in ceramic tiles painted in 1977 by Athos Bulcão. Offices for the Archdiocese of Brasilia were completed in 2007 next to the cathedral. The 3,000-square-metre (32,000 sq ft) building connects directly to the cathedral underground.

Visitors enter into the cathedral through a dark tunnel and emerge into a bright space with a glass roof. The outer roof of the cathedral is composed of sixteen pieces of fiberglass, each 10 meters (33 ft) wide at the base and 30 meters (98 ft) long inserted between the concrete pillars. Under this is suspended a 2,000-square-meter (22,000 sq ft) stained glass work originally created in 1990 by Marianne Peretti, in shades of blue, green, white, and brown.

Inside the cathedral over the nave are sculptures of three angels, suspended by steel cables. The shortest is 2.22 meters (7 ft 3 in) long and weighs 100 kilograms (220 lb), the middle one 3.4 meters (11 ft) long and weighs 200 kilograms (440 lb), and the largest is 4.25 meters (13.9 ft) long and weighs 300 kilograms (660 lb). The sculptures are by Alfredo Ceschiatti, with the collaboration of Dante Croce in 1970. The altar was donated by Pope Paul VI and the image of the patron saint Our Lady of Aparecida is a replica of the original which is in Aparecida - São Paulo. The Way of the Cross is a work of Di Cavalcanti.

Under the main altar is a small chapel accessible by steps from on either side of and behind the altar.

Designed by Oscar Niemeyer, completed and dedicated in 1970.

The Brasília TV Tower was completed in 1967 (the observation platform was opened in 1965) at a height of 218 meters, but in 1987 another 6 meter was added by the TV channel Bandeirantes. Now the TV Tower is 224 m height. This tower is the third tallest structure of Brazil and is also one of the most noticeable when you drive across Juscelino Kubitschek Bridge. It is located on Brasilia's Monumental Axis.

Brasília is the capital of Brazil, located in the central part of the country.
