  • Although its members elected have bad reputation (there are employees that work there too), worth visiting. Is guided, every half hour (check the schedule). Packed with historical aspects, this place also has a gallery. Worth visiting

  • I expected more of the National Congress, especially the conservation of buildings and furniture, since it costs us so much. Some parts, in fact, are (or were) shameful. The guide was well worked hard, but I think it could last longer and with greater wealth of information. You can come back because, in fact, the visit was swift and some sections were either closed for renovations, or hearings, or were really in a hurry. But coming back, just out of pure interest in politics and history. The architecture, which is the value, by designers, landscapers, and such, leaves something to be desired: from rugs and carpets until the spending ceiling plaster falling on international committees receiving room. For those who have visited places like the White House or a simple customs in the United States, is frustrating.

  • Really great. And with danish design furniture! Although I may have missed 95% of the guide instructions, it was still one of the great(est?) cultural/political experiences. This is the quintessential point of the fantastic achievement of building a capitol in five years. Also, it's a prefect scene for a contemplative 2 hours, walking these halls of power so sadly misused in these years with corruption, nepotism and selfishness.
  • Recently visited the house of the Representatives in Brasilia. It looks quite stylish, big open areas, nice location in the city center around the ministry buildings and near the presidential palace. Here you could see the deputy chamber and the Congress chamber. People are friendly and nice.
  • Striking building which dominates the skyline. The tour was interesting, especially a room of artefacts from the old legislature, which must have been ornate.
  • Some good some bad. Have a lot of bandit and corrupt people working in the field of Brazilian government and then stolen much more than a justice can put all in the jail.
  • How come the embodiment of our social power is so segregated from society at all? Everything is so far apart, in an itself far apart region. This should be the congress house, surrounded by people to allow discussion and strengthen our ties. Yet it is in a totally separated from the rest of the country. It should be the Capital, yet it is a boring place.
