Panteao da Patria, Brasilia

(3.5/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Panteao da Patria and other Brasilia attractions using our handy Brasilia itinerary planner.

  • Talk of Trancredo Neves, very good but the second floor did not like much, it's too dark and abado.

  • I believe that it is important to visit the Museum that likes history, and what you will find, from historical documents and multimedia parts of Tancredo Neves with your political trajectory from the cradle until your order, if this perpetuating Museum. This last time I went to the top was missing parts.
