The Legislative Palace is a uniquely beautiful place. One that Uruguayans are rightly proud of. It is worth a visit and you will take many photographs.

Palacio Legislativo is an antique traditional building worth seeing. I think that if you enjoy having a gist of where the ones who are in charge of making the actual laws go, you will enjoy the visit.
