Nothing about Brasilia is ordinary and this church was no exception. Really unusual but stunning design both inside and out. Best to go in the morning or afternoon with the light streaming in through the beautiful stained glass windows. Worth a visit!

This place is so beautiful. At the day, the sunlight invades the stained glasses and the vision of the blue light is wonderful. Is a place of peace and praise, full of beauty. However at night, there's a huge chandelier made of crystal.

This extraordinary modern cathedral is well worth a visit. From the outside it doesn't look much but once inside the four blue-windowed walls and the huge central chandelier (not always lit) are unforgettable. It is easy to see why it is so popular for weddings....More

As other reviewers have said, it doesn't look so much from the outside but inside is beautiful. Enjoy the light glittering through the blue glass and the peaceful ambiance. Useful info, downstairs there is a water fountain, toilet and gift shop. Definitely worth a visit,...More
