“Majestic and well laid out”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Easily approached by city bus this is a beautiful monument which does justice to the growing importance of Brasil in the world. The uniqueness of the architecture and the outstanding landscaping makes it a must visit place!

Guided visit to the Brazilian Congress, every day from 9:30 AM. It is one more Oscar Niemeyer project for the Brazilian capital city.

“Brazil does not deserve its politicians”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

It only worth because of its architectonic lines, nothing more than that. Brazilian congressmen are one of the main responsible for the current moral degradation of the country.

“Impressive architecture”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

It's an impressive construction with a lot of meaning to it as well. It looks interesting on the outside and if you get on a free tour then you can go inside both of the 'domes' and see a lot of the stuff that goes on in there. We were even taken in to watch one of the live debates.

“Nice guided tours”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Actually, I was not on a "normal" tour, but we were there, my daughter and I, for a presentation her kids' orchestra did. It was a weekend, not very hustle and bustle. The Congress has some very pleasant rooms, some admirable art and given that it's a free tour, totally worth it.
