Government Building Architectural Building
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.

    Although scheduled visit, I've only been on the outside. I would love to have seen him with waterfall in operation.

    Like almost everything else around is very modern. The waterfalls of the façade still leave more beautiful. Is it working the Minister of Justice. It is close to the esplanada dos ministérios, Congress and has access for the monumental axis.

    Ministry of Justice, beautiful place, especially when the waters are connected, making a beautiful scenario. I don't know how and whether to accept visitors, but it's worth at least some pictures ...

Where to stay in Brasilia

Choosing where to stay during your trip to Brasilia can be somewhat difficult. Due to the city's distinctive layout and lack of a historical "center," accommodations have developed in clusters. By far the best range of options surrounds the distinctive green space of Jardim Burle Marx, in the city's two planned hotel districts. You can also find a good selection of lodgings around Vila Planalto, the city's designated political district, which sits not far from Brasilia's main lake. Wherever you decide to stay, make sure it's within reasonable distance of a metro station or bus stop--you'll want good access to public transport in order to easily navigate the city.
