Congreso de la Nacion Argentina (National Congress)

Home to Argentina’s legislative assembly, this grand neoclassical building is lavishly decorated and filled with Argentinian political lore.

Take a guided tour through one of the centrepieces of Argentina’s national government, the Congreso de la Nacion Argentina (National Congress). Admire the imposing neoclassical architecture, marvel at the famous sculpture out front and learn about Argentina’s political system at this government landmark in the city centre.

The narrow cupola of the Argentine National Congress looms over an expansive plaza. Built in 1906 in a Greco-Roman style, the palace is lined with tall pillars and crowned with a bright-green copper top. Notice the bronze figures depicting peace and victory situated on the building’s eaves.

Explore the interior of the building on a free guided tour. Inside, the National Congress is furnished with sparkling chandeliers, Corinthian pillars and bronze statues. See depictions of Argentinian political history in the paintings hung throughout the building’s interior.

The semicircular Congressional chamber is where Argentina’s Congress holds session. Peek inside the whimsically named Salón Rosada (Pink Room). The famous former first lady and women’s rights activist Eva Perón set this room aside as a haven for female politicians, where they could meet outside the company of males.

Visit the National Congress on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday to join a guided tour. Ask at the reception whether congress is in session, because this may mean that some of the areas usually open to the public are closed. Make sure to bring photo identification, which is required to join a tour.

Two plazas lie along the concourse in front of the National Congress. The Plaza del Congreso is closest, and it features an enormous fountain graced with angel and animal statues. Continue east to find the Plaza Mariano Moreno, where there is a large cast of Auguste Rodin’s The Thinker.

Located at the west end of Avenida de Mayo, the Argentine National Congress can be easily accessed by metro, city bus or via a hop-on, hop-off tourist bus. After your visit, take a lovely 25-minute walk along the tree-lined Avenida de Mayo to reach the Casa Rosada.
