This is the most beautiful use of stained glass I've ever seen. When the light shines through, the walls sparkle. The outside is very misleading, but once you step inside your view changes. We went just to take a look. The church is unlocked and they don't mind you taking pictures. Just make sure you're quiet and respectful. This is... More

I loved this church, it doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside the windows are amazing!

Go visit it at night, around 7 pm. It is much more worth it. If possible, attend a mass in there... The atmosphere is really nice.

Huge cube-shaped church with vertical blue stained glass windows. Worth a visit. It's a pity some broken pieces of stained glass were replaced by a different shade of blue.

This place is different from all the other churches that I have seen. You must visit it when you go to Brasília.

It looks so unassuming from the outside. But once you enter the church, you are immediately hit by the aura the light from the blue-stained glass creates. You would need to spend a few minutes here to take in the effects of this simple yet clever architecture and how the sunlight mingles with all that blueness...a definitive spiritual experience.

Beautiful on the inside. A little out of the way, but worth the walk. Thought most of the "monuments" in Brasilia were kind of a waste of time. Nice view from the TV tower, but not worth a long wait unless you have time to burn. Inside of this church was really beautiful, though. We couldn't get into the Cathedral... More

This is really impressive to see. You should come and see it. You will only need to stay for 5 minutes though because there is nothing to do here.
