  • Unlike the latest reviews you can and should visit this wonderful building. Registration in advance is required simply because there may not be more than 15 people per must be guided... Like all of the buildings of Brasilia designed by O. Niemeyer is beautiful from the outside and incredible inside! A lobby of more than 2000 m 2 with no RAID support, a mezzanine as if suspended in a vacuum and a staircase to the airlines will not be less surprises! Decoration, furniture, carpets, and works of art complement this timeless architecture. The sculpture named "Metamorphosis" at the top of the stairs is worth the visit... A free and guided visit in french (on reservation) more! In short, a real pleasure for the eyes and mind!

  • The visitation to the Palace is very worthwhile, especially for those interested in art and architecture. Too bad it's too little time to talk, and nothing was said to be very thorough.

  • Where touches on patriotism. Enhances our artists, our works of art, its beautiful gardens, halls and receptions halls without defects and ready to receive the biggest personalities in the world. Surely the Itamaraty is a postcard to be known and more released! Worth the visit!

  • Is one of the most beautiful attachments ... But without any accessibility.
