Classy, italian marble european design, it is indispensable to visit and view and hear the story of Democracy and freedom in Uruguay. Nice building also. Allow one hour and a half and better to sesrch for inside tours.

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
