Legislative Palace



On July 1st, 1905, was placed the main stone of the first magnitude work ever done by the State, which would later turn into one of the most important architectural achievement of the city.  It was inaugurated on August 25th, 1925, commemorating the First Century of Independency. In the façades of the attics, four scultural groups in bronze by Italian Castiglioni symbolize Law, Justice, Cience and Work. Its four façades are facing the four cardinal points, being the South the main entrance.    A big granite staircase and a ramp for vehicles surrounded by round and square columns take you to the Honour lobby through which you can access the Room of Lost Steps. It is a large space in national marbles that separates the Chambers of Representatives and Senators. We can observe two magnificent stained glass windows brought from Italy, designed by Juan Buffa. Its three floors and subsoil are in eclectic neoclassicist style and occupy around 8,000 square metres.   Source: Ministry of Tourism and Sports of Uruguay
