  • Located in the square of Sunflowers, the Araguaia is a Palace she building, and its details at the top tell a little of the history of the State. On the square are the buildings of the 3 powers.

  • Very beautiful place, and has many monuments that make it even more interesting that shame that most people only spend on the side and never enter the square to see the interesting and historical things.

  • The Araguaia Palace is arguably the most impressive of the buildings that form the architectural ensemble of the square of Sunflowers. It was inaugurated on 9 March 1991 to host the State Government. Until the date of opening your Executive seat worked in the building now known as Palacinho. The original design is by the architect Mary Luci da Costa and architect Ernani Vilela. Were not part of the original design the friezes that line the highest beams of the structure, or the frontispícios at the top of the building. Second talk arched structures covered in "brick" was inspired by the ruins of the construction of the Church of Nossa Senhora do Rosário dos Pretos, in historic Centennial Nativity do Tocantins. The panels carved in concrete beams of the Palace are made in glass fibers, revealing images that report the official story of the Tocantins. The frontispícios placed in the North and South side of the building were the center of a controversy involving Government exchanges. These adornments of the building had two versions. At first there were the centres frontispícios Globes (as) and a symbolization of the Holy Spirit. This first version was removed on the occasion of a change of Government. The metal frame that was removed was for years missing and was found, after new Government Exchange, recovery is not possible. In this way were ordered new frontispícios for the building, but this time instead of having a globe in the center of each piece, was placed the coat of arms of the State. All of these works, added to the architectural design of Ernani Vilela and Mary Luci da Costa, is by the artist Mauricio Bentes signing another made in the square of Sunflowers. The feat of construction of the Palace the Palace of the Araguaia into one super reinforced concrete structure, consolidated Palmas irreversibly as the capital. Symbolically the structure of wooden seat was no longer showing the fortress of the project of creation of the State of Tocantins. In addition, the building houses two large tile panels with scenes from the history of the Tocantins, two stained glass mosaic with scenes from the New Testament, a model with the unique design of the square of Sunflowers, paintings by artists tocantinenses and several viewpoints of a privileged view of the city of Palms.
