This building is one of the more dimly lighted but it provides a good night time photo. Its also good at night because they're no cars parked in front of it, you get obstructed view.

Queen isabella the catholic is just in front of this stunning building that has the flags of all american states (not talking about US states, but actual countries) represented. The patio is wonderful, and provides some shade and you can see some rare tropical plants.

Just across from the Washington Monument and down from the White House, the OAS is headquartered in a beautiful white stone building. The 17th Street entrance brings you into a garden area with trees and conventional South American tile and stone surroundings in an atrium...More
