Congresso Nacional is located in the middle of the Capital. This is where the Senate and House of representatives are located. It´s famous because of it´s architectural facade, which is unique. I´m proud for working there.

This building is an icon of Brasília. It's impossible to visit the Brazil's capital without seeing it, but what "they" do inside that is terrible. A part form the politics, it worth visiting.
