Congreso Buenos Aires City

El Congresso is quite impressive. Finished in 1906 in an Italian academic style with some classical touches, the building is a four-storied rectangle and has two pavilions, one on each side.

The Congress is placed at the end of Avenida de Mayo, and it owns the city's largest dome, which emulates the one in Washington in a smaller scale. Italian architect Meano, who lived i Buenos Aires, got the tender with his project. Its design follows late XIX Century's and early XX Century's paradigmatic architecture school, focused in three fundamental axes: academism, eclecticism and classicism.

"Le Penseur" and the Congreso Building

The Gran Salón Azual and Salón de los Pasos Perdidos stand out inside the building, where meetings with personalities from global politics are held. It counts with one of the countries' main libraries, with over one millon books.

In front of the Congreso Congress building is another beautiful park. The park features the sculpture "Le Penseur" by August Rodin, along with a fountain sculpture "Monument of the two Congresses", an allegory that represents the Andes Mountains with the main rivers of the plains: Parana, Uruguay, and Rio de La Plata flowing into a large pool below.
