The Itamaraty Palace is the most beautiful public building in Brasília. This is so for its amazingly modern architecture and also because of the pieces of art and furniture displayed all over its many spacious rooms and lounges. There is also a roof top, with...More

Ahh, ahh - so stunning. The minute you enter the Ministry of Foreign Affairs building on a guided tour- in the full hour - you will be taken by awe. A wonderful sensorial experience with unique pieces of art. You won't forget the statue "metamorphosis".

Beside the Parliament Buildings, the Itamaraty Palace can not be missed if and when in Brasilia. Oscar Niemeyer designed the Ministry of Foreign Affair and gave it a stairway to heaven. This building is a concrete dream. And although he liked to copy his own...More
