Washington, D.C.: direct dive into History

In Washington, D.C. you can find the headquarters of the three branches of the United States federal government, executive, legislative and judicial. The city is easily identifiable because it is a frequent setting for films or television news.

However, the city has much more to offer than beautiful and wide views.

National Mall: where (almost) everything is concentrated

The National Mall park is, of course, one of the most visited attractions in the city (it receives more than 20 million visitors every year), concentrating a big part of the most outstanding monuments and museums in Washington, D.C.

In this vast green area you can visit the United States Capitol, the impressive Library of Congress (it has the largest book collection in the world), the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument (the tallest obelisk on the planet) and the National Museum of American History, among many others.

In addition to being a tourist spot, the National Mall has been the stage for several demonstrations, such as the 1963 March on Washington, in which Martin Luther King Jr. made the famous speech “I Have a Dream.” The political activist was honored in 2011 with the opening of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, located nearby, in West Potomac Park.
