Overall Guide : At Eixo Monumental (Monumental Shaft), the large avenue forms a bird body and houses Praça dos Três Poderes (Três Poderes Public Square), Esplanada dos Ministérios, the Cathedral, museums and monuments. The wings shaft, formed by several parallels... more roads, houses residential Super-Quadras and commerce and services sectors. At peninsulas that go in Paranoá artificial lagoon, are located residential sectors, big houses and embassies. Although lines, which compose the original city plane, have been preserved, administrative demands and population growth require urbanistic changes. Many appendages were incorporated to main buildings. Even with the existence of viaducts that eliminates streets and avenues crossroads, the increasing of vehicles traffic obligated signals installation to control it in some city points. But Brasilia isn't only a bold architecture great exposition, which gave to the city the title of Cultural Patrimony of Humanity by Unesco. The buildings are included in immense gardens and there are parks, such as Parque da Cidade (City Park) and Parque Nacional de Brasília (Brasilia National Park). It has a lot of museums and theaters.
