The elevator takes you up to a viewing platform about a third of the way up on this 230 meter high TV tower. From here you really get a good idea of the extent of the city's Eixo Monumental - the very long greenway that extends in both directions from the tower and contains many of the iconic Niemeyer architectural...

The place is great, once you take the elevator you get to a magnificient view of Brasilia, bad thing that it closes at night, it would be awesome to see the place all lighted up!

Want to see why Brasilia is said to be designed like a an airplane? Climb up the tv tower at the Esplanda dos Ministérios and see how the sprawling south wing (Asa Sul), north wing (Asa Norte) and the fuselage (Esplanada). A must do in Brasília. After the climb up, go down and walk around the TV tower stalls for... More

Small line in front of the elevator. If you are lucky you can see the fountain when it is on. Nice view up and down the monumental.

Perfectly located in order to see all the wonderful architecture – that you will have inspected on a closer look before – from a bird's perspective now. Hope for nice weather and you'll have the time/sights of your life for some 20 minutes. It's really for free!

In Brasilia, there are two towers from which to get great views. This is the original and its design is in keeping with the overall 60's futuristic design of the city. Loved the big empty main enclosed floor above the entry plaza (Check out the cool tile work on the wall facing in the direction of the congress complex). The... More

For that incredible picture of Brasilia there is no place like the Torre de Televisao. A 360degree panoramic vista is what you get from the top of the Tower. Quick visit. Do not miss it.

Free elevator takes you to an observation deck for a 360 degree view of the city. Right across the street from the Melia 21 hotel complex

This tower was opposite our hotel so it was easy to visit. There are pedestrian lights outside the hotel and given the traffic they are recommended to use. There is a lift (elevator) at ground level that takes you to a platform about half way up. It is free. The view is fantastic with panoramic views down the monumental hub... More
