Despite the people who works there (politicians), it's beautiful to go and see. There are no near parking. You can go by bus or walking.

This building is an icon of Brasília. It's impossible to visit the Brazil's capital without seeing it, but what "they" do inside that is terrible. A part form the politics, it worth visiting.

A visit to Brasilia is never going to be 100% without a visit to the National Congress of Brazil, the Brazilian Parliament. The complex is worth a visit because of its uniqueness. Designed by Oscar Niemeyer, the National Congress has a semi-sphere on the left,...More

Oscar Niemayer's extraordinary architecture, designed in the 60's with futuristic vision. The lines of the buildings follow the characteristics of the other buildings of the pilot plan of the city of Brasilia. It is worth checking.

Nice place to visit to get to know a litte bit of Brazil´s politic history. If you can, take the guided visit, it takes 1-2h visit into the congress.

The seat of legislative power in Brasilia. The building was designed by Niemyer and is one of the tourist attractions in the city. Public access and a guided tour is allowed.

"El Congresso Nacional" is one of the highlights of a visit to Brasilia !! Very impressive building either during the day or at night. Don't forget to walk around the buildings because they are all different one from the other. Really too bad you can't...More
