Brazil is known for many things. One of the first things that should come to mind is samba and the carnival in Rio de Janeiro. It is also known for its beaches and, unfortunately, humongous contrast between the rich and the poor, which is of the proportions not to be observed in any other country. But there is much more to this country than that. Actually, there are some pretty famous buildings in Brazil, maybe not as popular as the ones found in the US or China, but still unique nonetheless. Read this short list to know what to look for when visiting Brazil.
First, you can admire a building that will be familiar to you in terms of the style. Mirante do Vale is the highest skyscraper in Brazil, and 15th tallest building in South America. This construction, located in Sao Paulo, has retained this title for about 50 years now. But the newest ongoing projects will take that title from Mirante do Vale away.
Then, you can travel deep into the heart of the Amazonian rainforest, to the city of Manaus. There, you will be able to admire the Amazon Theater. It is a music venue that houses the Amazonas Philharmonic Orchestra, one of the best orchestras in Brazil. But the place is a pearl not only for audiophiles, but also the lovers of good architecture. The building, opened at the very beginning of 1897, has been erected in the spirit of Renaissance style, giving it a distinct look of a cathedral or palace. But one look at the dome, marvelously decorated with Brazilian flag, is enough to reveal its secular purpose. If you like sightseeing and classical music, that it is a must for you.
The last famous building in Brazil included in this list is the Cathedral Basilica of Salvador, one of the oldest buildings in South America of the European origin. Back in 1551, in the first Portuguese colony, with the help of a wealthy nobleman the cathedral was erected in Salvador. The monumental look of this temple will make an impression even on the most skeptical tourists. Not to mention the rich-in-details interior. Just remember to honor the place with an appropriate outfit.
These famous buildings in Brazil were certainly erected without the help of an advanced construction project management. However, the newest constructions that are currently underway in Brazil are using it, therefore, you can bet on it that they will be as attractive to see by the tourists as these three buildings are.
