  The National Congress
by pili

Favorite thing: This palace was built by the Italian architect Victor Meano in 1906, and it covers 9,000 mt2.
It is the seat of the country´s Legislative Power, consisting of one Chamber of Senators and another of Deputies. Its most remarkable element is the great dome emerging from the center of the building, which is illuminated at night. Inside the building the most outstanding features are the semi-circular room housing the Deputies Chamber, the library and the ?Room of the lost steps?, with its sumptuous decoration.-
