Panteao da Patria, Brasilia

2.8
#9 of 55 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.

  • Monument located in the square of the three powers. The monument to freedom and democracy was built in tribute to Tancredo Neves and is an unmissable attraction in Brasilia!

  • The pantheon of the fatherland is located in the square of the three powers, the place is very beautiful with very easy access, however I understand that it should be better disclosed, because many people who go to this square is not aware of this patrimony of Brasilia.

  • Monument with history of Tancredo Neves and the "heroes" of the Fatherland. There's some cool stuff, but I didn't find anything. The part of the heroes is particularly uncomfortable, not only because it is a metal book, with a spot of light on top (which should help you to read, but only hinder), but also because the list has extremely questionable names.
