very large and extensive, the buildings has a great touch of modern architecture.... but i suffered with the traffic.
The free tour of the Brazilian Congress is very well done and takes visitors through both chambers and several common areas of the congress building. Wear long pants as shorts are not permitted on most days.
I took the guided visit to the Congresso Nacional in September 2013 with friends. I personally found it very interesting, you know, seeing things you normally only see in the TV and realize they are (or aren't) the way you thought they were. My only complaining is that our guide would talk so fast and then keep on going with... More
I recommend visit the Congresso Nacional. Near this build there are many others places that is very nice to visit like Palacio do Planalto, etc
Not only the place where the big decisions are made in Brasil, Congresso Nacional is also Brasilia's most famous post card. It shows the geniality of the architect Oscar Niemeyer.

No line and we passed only a metal detector and then were able to stroll around the interior waiting for a tour, which unfortunately for us... More
We had an english speaking tour of the halls which was late in the afternoon but was worthwhile as the sunset shots were great and the reflection of the towers in the pond at the back of the building are also worthwhile. The free tour takes you into the public viewing area of each Chamber, the different coloured areas the... More
No, it's the Brazilian congress. Interesting. I missed the tour which is given only at certain times during the week, but walking around the plaza was enough to get the aura.
