The Palácio do Jaburu is the official residence of the Vice-President of Brazil. The palace was designed, along with the rest of the city of Brasília, by Oscar Niemeyer and inaugurated in 1977. It is located near the Palácio da Alvorada in Brasília. The name comes from a common bird of the region, the Jabiru.The Jaburu was projected in 1973 and inaugurated in 1977 - seventeen years after the inauguration of Brasília. Adalberto Pereira dos Santos, Vice-President of Ernesto Geisel was the first resident, followed by Aureliano Chaves and Itamar Franco . Marco Maciel occupied the Palace from 1995 to 2002.The PalaceTo the side of the lagoon that gave the name to it and to the edges of the Paranoá Lake, the Palace of the Jaburu was projected by the architect Oscar Niemeyer to be the official residence of the Vice-president of the Republic, with the urbanistic concept proposed by Lúcio Costa for Brasília.The main characteristic of the Palace and its differential from others, such as the Palácio da Alvorada, is the fact of it being a construction exclusively destined to housing. Its 4,283 square meters privilege the external area, with generous varandas and common areas.Located along the Presidential Way, between the Palaces of Planalto and Alvorada, the Palácio do Jaburu is in the topographical level of the Paranoá Lake, occupying an area of 190,000 square meters.

  • It make part of the Alvorada Palace tour and it will by a quick pass by as its smaller than Alvorada and it doesn't has much to see.  more »
  • This is the vice-president's house. We drove by it in a taxi and its hard to see anything in the first place because it is set pretty far back into the land. I wouldn't go out of the way to visit it.  more »
  • You may just pass by using a car or taxi and see the arquitecture, but compared to other building, it is not worth a visit for itself, only if you are already on you way and passing by.  more »

  • One of a few days, this beautiful architectural ensemble will be uninhabited, as the current resident was named head of a provisional junta that will take over the Government after a PARLIAMENTARY COUP in Honduras 2009 parliamentary scams and Paraguay 2012.
