Photographer's Note

I have already Palacio Legislativo in my TrekEarth gallery (click here to see it). This is a presentation from slightly different angle.

Palacio Legislativo in Montevideo, Uruguay, is the name of the working place of the General Assembly of Uruguay. The construction of this building started in 1904 sponsored by the government of President José Batlle y Ordoñez. It was designed by Italian architects Vittorio Meano and Gaetano Moretti, who planned the building's interior. Among the notable contributors to the project was sculptor José Belloni, who created numerous reliefs and allegorical sculptures for the building. The General Assembly building was inaugurated on August 25, 1925, presided over by President José Serrato, to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of Uruguayan Independence; before then, the Uruguayan parliament assembled at the Montevideo Cabildo.
