Palace of Justice, Brasilia

(320+ reviews on the web)
Government 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.

  • All palaces of Brasília has a unique beauty! Worth the ride, even for those who go to work, a pause for a photo costs nothing!

  • The classic lines of the great architect of Brasilia are portrayed in this Palace. The beauty is in your lines that emphasizes harmony. When choosing where to visit, consider that in the same area you can contemplate and/or visit the National Congress, planalto Palace, Itamaraty, and federal Supreme beyond the vision of esplanada dos ministérios.
