A relatively new city, it officially opened in 1960, although plans for the city date back to 1823 when the rulers of Brazil wanted to move its capital from the coast to the interior to help protect it from maritime raids. The first brick of Brasilia was laid in 1922, but it wasn't until 1955 when official construction of the modern city began. (B)
