    Devised by urbanist Lucio Costa (1902 – 1998) as the basic element of the Pilot Plan, this model quarter had been the first to be built in town, together with 108 SUL which had been designed completely by Oscar Niemeyer (1907 – 2012).     It is made up of four residential superblocks, and counts with the complete infrastructure of daily life, such as kindergarten, school, library, health center, church (Igrejinha d N.S. da Fatima), social club (Clube da Vizinhanca) and movie theater (Cine Brasília).     The landscaping is by Roberto Burle Marx. The model quarter was listed as District Heritage on April 20, 2009. The Walking Tour includes the visit of the chapel Igrejinha da N.S. de Fatima (with tiles by Athos Bulcao) and also gives you the opportunity to meet D. Lourivaldo, owner of the „Banca da 308 SUL“, the first and thus oldest kiosk in town.     Availability: any day of the week, to be booked for closed groups Duration: 1 ½ hours Number of participants: max. 8 Investment: R$ 45 p.p
