The stained windows and unusual architecture were quite simply, stunning. Even though they were busy with some maintenance, it still couldn't detract from the experience. This stop has to be added to your visit to Maputo!

The architect Nuno Craveiro Lopes was inspired by an inverted flower, but the people saw a lemon squeezer. The use of concrete enabled 20th century architects to use modern forms in their design. The church was built in 1962. To the frustration of the architect the original design was changed by the priests. Originally the altar was envisaged to be in the middle under the dome with the colorful top.

Hopped over there after visiting the art market nearby. It's near the Dutch Embassy on a quiet and rich street. The place was going through renovations and I could not get in. I'm not sure how long the renovation will be on for.

Under renovation at the moment and only accessible through the back gate.
Even then you can only see inside through a couple of broken window slats.
Worth visiting though because it really looks unusual.
“Lemon squeezer” really is the right term for it!

Also known in town as the lemon-squeezer, this church is a landmark not to be missed when visiting Maputo. Its shape is particular and recognizable among all. The contrast of its materials: rough concrete and delicate stain steel is to be mentioned. Its games of light created by the disposition of the stain glasses inside is adding to the particularities of the place. The church is open to the public for visits but also for worshipping.

Great architecture of Maputo, within Polana neighborhood. Nice to see, to get in and to see people visiting this worship place. My best time was my married in this "Igreja da Polana"
