“Located at the same Square as Itamaraty”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

I don't really know anyone who said "I like the way the politicians work in my country", I don't think I travelled to a lot of countries, but I did travel some and I never heard that. Besides that, the place is nice so you can take nice pictures

“Sight and lunch with a view.”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

Not only a lovely sighting building. At the top of the administrative building is a senac restaurant with a great view of the city.

“Tour could be better!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

The tour is only in portuguese and explains how the government works but not so much on the architecture of the building .. inside you feel you are in an average government building..

“Architecture”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Brasilia is all about architecture and the National Congress is one of the most imponent building of Brasilia. Go there while visiting the entire monumental strip. Sometimes it is opened to the public and you can visit inside.

“Gorgeous stark symbolic architecture”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

If you love modern architecture, especially from the 1960s, Brasilia is a pilgrimage you need to make. I am truly glad I did.
