CR Parliament


The "Asamblea Legislativa" meets in the so-called "Edificio Central" which was designed to house the presidential palace. Works started in 1937 soon had to be terminated due to World War II and the lack of building materials. Construction proceeded in 1957, and the legislature moved into the premises in 1958. The legislature’s new building, a 76 million dollar monumental bridge construction spanning the old building and its surrounding area overhead, is due for completion in 2018.
