  • Built at the end of the century passed, and finalized at the beginning of the 20th century. Neo-classical style, inspired Greek in the whole of its exterior walls can be observed. Functional design, and a beautiful concept in some of its interior spaces and its decoration. A truly majestic building. Sculptures that decorate the exterior of the building, were mostly conducted through competitions. His greatest artistic expression, the Guide, told us is represented on the tympanum of the central portico or Pronao, conceived by the Italian sculptor Gianino Castiglione. The interior of the building has finishes on marble and porphyry of various colors, can be visited. the price is reasonable.

  • We did the tour in Portuguese and the place blew us away. Despite being the Legislative Palace, the place is Rico in stained glass and mosaics.
