El Capitolio, Washington D.C.

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

El Capitolio de los Estados Unidos es el edificio que alberga las dos cámaras del Congreso de los Estados Unidos. Se encuentra en el barrio Capitol Hill en Washington D.C., la capital del país. Una primera etapa fue terminada de construir en 1800 y es una de las principales atracciones turísticas de la ciudad.

El edificio fue diseñado inicialmente por William Thornton y posteriormente modificado por Benjamin Henry Latrobe y Charles Bulfinch. Thomas U. Walter y August Schoenborn diseñaron la cúpula actual y el ala del Senado; tiene el Capitolio una gran cúpula en el centro y dos edificios anexos a cada lado. El ala norte corresponde al Senado y el ala sur a la cámara de Representantes. En los pisos de arriba hay galerías para que el público pueda observar las sesiones en determinadas ocasiones. Es un ejemplo del neoclasicismo arquitectónico estadounidense.
