    Take a tour of Argentine National Congress in Buenos Aires, Argentina - part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.

    All highways in Argentina branch out from the National Congress building in Buenos Aires.

    This impressive seat of government was inaugurated in 1906, but the finishing aesthetic touches weren't completed until 1946.

    A prominent Italian architect designed the building, with the final plan completed by the one of Argentina’s own.

    The building hosts the bicameral legislative branch of Argentina's government, the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies.

    Adjacent to the building is the Congressional Plaza, a public park which has hosted protests, demonstrations, and festivities.

    Bronzed statues and towering domes dot the landscape and provide an opulence befitting of the country's headquarters.
