Nice to stop by on a nice day to see the architecture. We did not go in, but viewed the structure from all sides.

Walked over to see the Capitol building on a Sunday morning. Not much going on around the site itself, but was nice to see this architecturally interesting building.

I went to this place as part of national day at Montevideo with free of cost. This is very big and doesn't seems to be like an assembly building
