PE Parliament


Designed by French architect Emile Robert, the "Palacio del Congreso" was inaugurated in 1908. In the 1930ies, architects Claudio Sahut and Richard Jaxa Malachowski modified the building and redesigned its façade in Belle Époque style. Besides this conversion, Malachowski has shaped Lima's cityscape with a series of prominent designs, such as for the Government Palace, the Columbian embassy and the façade of the City Theatre.
