Take the tour. It was very educational and there are some very interesting facts here. We saw some glass that had been damaged by the protests in 2013. The damage looked like gunshots but the guide told us it was slingshots - I still don't believe it but go see for yourself.

This is my favorite of all the buildings in Brasilia. Amazing setting for the foreign ministry. Great view of Congress from the balcony.. The concrete spiral staircase from the entry level to the reception area is a revelation. I think this building was sublimely realized in both form and purpose.

We had a interesting tour with Manuela, a trained architect, The Brazilian couple who joined us, graciously allowed Manuela to give us the tour in English. It was the highlight of our visit to Brasilia. Itamaraty Palace is an unassuming building filled with bold and unique architectural details. It combines the best of the designs by Oscar Niemeyer, the architect... More

Worth taking the trouble to book a visit inside, which is free but only possible thru a guided tour. Attention: the booked visit may be postponed or even cancelled when an official visit takes place. How on earth can they take bookings when an official foreign visitis planned I don't know, but it's Brasil ;)
