Panteao da Patria, Brasilia

3.5
#9 of 53 in Museums in Brasilia
As you approach this National Heritage site, you will be struck by the impressive, dove-shaped building; designed by Brazil’s beloved Oscar Niemeyer, it is a classic example of his distinctive, modernist style. Inside Panteao da Patria, you will find the Steel Book statue, on which are engraved the names of the nation’s heroes, each of them ardent advocates of freedom and democracy. There is also a collection of artwork, including Athos Bulcão’s poignant red mural and João Câmara Filho’s black and white panels. The beautiful stained-glass window by French-Brazilian artist Marianne Peretti, who used purple, red, and white--representing introspection, passion, and peace respectively--to create a symbolic map of Brazil, provides you with a thought-provoking focal point.

  • It was to be very interesting, but because of the Carnival, was a warning saying that only open on Monday.

  • The death of Tancredo Neves, and was raised in your honor and consequently the other important people too ... Unlike most of the Pantões out of Brazil, there are no remains of anyone in this, by the way, that's good, because the place looks abandoned, dirty, with píchações, to "get the country off. I don't want to go back no. But if you've never been, give a passadinha there. Is at the Plaza of the three powers and for sure, there you go, then passes in the Pantheon to also meet.
