PY Parliament



Introduction

With a gleaming facade of glass under a flying roof and a singular red pillar, Paraguay's newly constructed legislative palace is rich in postmodern symbolism. The modern structure replaced a historic building that mixed neoclassical elements and colonial style archways as home to the country's bicameral congress. In 2012, the Congress voted near-unanimously to impeach then President Lugo and oust him after a two-day trial in what many consider was a coup d'etat.
