Very nice tour available for those interested in the history of this Palace, with unique facts you'll only get to know if you take it.

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 ;)

We went there on a Saturday morning, but they told us if we came back at 1:00 pm there would be tours in English. It was beautiful, and creative.

The building holding the Brazilian Foreign Service - the Itamaraty - is beautiful in itself. Packed with history and interesting art, the experienced and very professional guides take you through an hour-long walk. Whenever I have visitors from abroad, I take them to the Itamaraty, located a few hundred meters from the Congress. Can't go wrong with this one.

A spectacular building that houses the Brazilian Foreign Ministry, set in the middle of a lovely reflecting pond, with an interesting sculpture in front representing the five continents. Puts Foggy Bottom in Washington, DC to shame!

Wonderful modern cathedral, with wonderful stained glass on the roof/walls. It's an iconic building of Brasília.

Another Niemeyer masterpiece with gardens to match. Inside also offers plenty from the superb pieces of art to important curios. One would be remiss to miss this one ! Free guided tour a welcome bonus.
