The building is the headquarters of the Ministry of External Relations and Foreign Affairs of Brazil. It is located in the national capital of Brasília and it was designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer and inaugurated on April 21, 1970.

Itamaraty is the best palace to visit in Brasilia. It is full of sculptures, paintings, carpets, historic furniture and beautiful gardens. From the second floor there is a nice view to other famous buildings.
