Photographer's Note

Few meters far from the JK Memorial is located the highest point of central Bras韑ia (1,172 meters above sea level). This place was near the camping the expedition who arrived in the region and demarcated the borderlines of the future Federal District. In this spot was put the a cross of Brazil-wood (the tree that gave its name to our country) to mark the main spot and at May 3rd of 1957 was celebrated the first religious event, a mass, exactly in the same day occurred the first mass of Brazil in 1500. Bras韑ia is filled with these symbolic connections with the history.
The city was created by the architect L鷆io Costa using this place as a reference, it was thought it would be the main part of the city, but the architect choose a point some kilometers bellow.
Nowadays the place is a square located in the middle of the Big Axis and locals go here to find different samples of food, as you can see the food trucks occupy the spaces around the square with many possibilities of fast food.
I could have visited the square but another big storm (the third) was arriving and I had to walk back to my hotel, visiting some buildings in the middle of the way.

Poucos metros acima do memorial JK est a Pra鏰 do Cruzeiro, onde fica o ponto mais alto da parte central da cidade, com 1172 metros de altitude. O local onde o acampamento dos primeiros demarcadores do DF se localizava aqui perto e foi ali que eles puseram uma cruz de pau-brasil para marcar o ponto mais importante do terreno. No dia 3 de maio de 1957 foi realizada ali a primeira missa, exatamente no mesmo dia da primeira missa no Brasil em 1500. Esses fatos simb髄icos ligados hist髍ia s鉶 sempre comuns na cidade.
Atualmente o local virou uma pra鏰, localizada no meio do Eix鉶, e os habitantes gostam de ir ali pois aparecem v醨ios caminh鮡s de lanche com diversas op珲es.
Eu poderia ter visitado a pra鏰, mas a terceira tempestade do dia estava chegando e eu tinha ainda que voltar a p para o meu hotel e queria ver ainda alguns pr閐ios no caminho.
