Palace of Justice, Brasilia

4.1
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.

  • I went to a possession. Well, now I found it creepy the fact will have air conditioned Salon ... imagine at lunchtime that lot of people in suits ... few Windows ... but the look is very beautiful, Combining with the modern architecture of the city of Brasília.

  • We can only take pictures from afar and is still super lifeguard. When we approached to take photo came shortly a security guard and was looking like we were going to take pictures. As knowledge of our Country.

  • There's nothing to see here, or the falls are linked because the DF has no more water, literally. Popping a shot in front.
