Unlike most state capitols that echo the Washington Capitol with two wings, Wisconsin built one with four wings so that it looks like an X from above. Distinctive.

Also distinctive in that it lies in the very center point between the two lakes on a high point. Great views.

This is a really pretty building. You can walk around it and see the downtown area. When I went there was a cool street fair going on. If you are in Madison definitely a place you should check out.
