Brasilia itamaraty palace

The Itamaraty Palace (Portuguese: Palácio Itamaraty), also known as the Palace of the Arches (Palácio dos Arcos), is the headquarters of the Ministry of External Relations of Brazil. It is located in the national capital of Brasília. The building was designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer and inaugurated on April 21, 1970. It is located to the east of the National Congress building along the Ministries Esplanade, near the Praça dos Três Poderes (Three Powers Plaza).


The word "Itamaraty" is a word originating from the Nheengatu language. According to Navarro, means "river of small stones", by joining ita (stone), Bantam (small) and ty (river). The name was also used for the former headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (1899-1970) in Rio de Janeiro.
