"Beautiful Views "

An aesthetically very pleasing sight in Brasilia is the 'Palacio Itamaraty', already from the exterior. Due to the many arches, which surround the square building, it is also called 'Palacio dos Arcos'. It belongs to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and gets mainly used as a reception hall.
