Owner description: The Capitol is among the most architecturally impressive and symbolically important buildings in the world. The Senate and the House of Representatives have met here for more than two centuries. Begun in 1793, the Capitol has been built, burnt, rebuilt, extended, and restored; today, it stands as a monument not only to its builders but also to the American people and their government.

“Beautiful place”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

We visited the capitol on the 12th of January and we loved. We loved the location, beautiful building and full of history. The famous rotunda is amazing. It is really worth going to see! Do not forget that it is necessary to schedule the visit previously. Employee very helpful and friendly.
