5. State Capitol
The Texas State Capitol, recognized as a National Historic Landmark, is a remarkable building that you should not miss when visiting Austin as the stunning red granite building glows brightly from its massive brass door hinges to the top of its fantastic dome, which you can visit by climbing four flights of the inlaid marble floor.
Stoically in the heart of Central Australia stands Texas’ Legislative Center, the State Capitol. The House of Representatives and the governor’s reception room still looks the same as it did when the Capitol opened. There are a large gift shop and a cafeteria, where you can also stop by.
