Colorado State Capitol

The capitol building was built in the last decade of the nineteenth century and dedicated in 1894. It houses the Colorado General Assembly and the offices of the governor, lieutenant governor, and state treasurer. The building was deliberately designed to resemble the United States Capitol and is constructed of white granite. At the top of the building is a gold dome with gilded copper plates with gold leaves mined in Colorado mines.



The interior of the building is decorated with rare rose marble from a local mine, and the floor is made of local white marble.


The building is full of stained glass windows depicting events or personalities from local history.



You can go ahead and tour the place with a guide, without the need for coordination, Monday through Friday, at 10:00, 11:00, 12:00, and 13:00. Twenty people in a group, based on available space. You can also visit independently between 7:30 and 17:00. In any case, you should check the Capitol website before arriving.


We independently toured the impressive building and came across something interesting: on the wall of portraits of the presidents of the United States, they forgot that Joe Biden is the current president (at the time of our visit, he had already served two years in office) and that Donald Trump had already finished his term.
