Photographer's Note

"Besides being the highest point in Brasília, the Television Tower is located in the central area of the Pilot Plan, in between the two avenues of the Monumental Axis. The tower is at a walking distance from the hotels sector; care must be exercized to cross the usually busy avenues of the Monumental Axis.
The tower is 218 meters (715 ft) high; this is the highest tower in Latin America. The observation deck is 75 meters (246 ft) high. At 25 meters, there is a lower deck, which houses the National Museum of Gemstones.

Access to the observation deck is via elevator only. Access is free of charge. The tower stays opened until 8 pm; several people climb the tower to watch sunset. In the area around the tower there is a handicraft fair.

The tower is the best place to see Brasília. The tower affords a direct view of the Three Powers Square and all monuments along the Monumental Axis; also, one can see the distribution of buildings across the wings of the Pilot Plan."

This is a diagonal view of Brasilia TV Tower.
