Palace of Justice, Brasilia

4.2
Water cascades down the front façade of Palace of Justice, a city landmark designed by the renowned architect Oscar Niemeyer. The building is located near the city’s well-known Monumental Axis and is part of the so-called "Ministries Esplanade." Erected in 1957, this is one of many official government buildings designed by Niemeyer in the modern Brazilian style of architecture. Make this a quick stop on your tour of the city, or drop in for a guided tour of the interior courtrooms and hallways, where many of the country’s historic decisions have been made over the last few decades. Next door to this building is the National Congress, another landmark designed by the ubiquitous Niemeyer.

  • OK close to the Presidential Palace and the National Congress. Hopefully the water are gushing out of these concrete trays set on pillars ... looks great the effect ... the night lighting very cherishes the architecture ...

  • If you're passing by the esplanada dos ministérios costs nothing to stop at the Palace of Justice, is a building with beautiful architecture, but is badly insulated, sometimes the grass is not trimmed and serves only for a photo or another.

  • Definitely one of the most beautiful buildings in Brasília.
  • Makes you believe you are part of a sci fi movie
  • Another magnificent building of Oscar Niemeyer with the Itamaraty Palace and although it lacks the elegance of this, is also original for its fountains and the elegant lobby with black marble, chandeliers and art nouveau silver ornaments. Observe that each face of the building is built of different columns, protecting from the Sun outside.

  • It seems that the falls are back gushing water after rains in Brasilia
