Blue, blue and more blue

Interior beautiful and a delightful surprise from concrete exterior. 4 walls of mainly blue stained glass designed to look like sky at night

There's two ways to look at this place from my opinion, If your Catholic, its a must see on your tour of churches around the world. It's peaceful and relaxing just to sit there and look at the beautiful and unique blue stain glass and chandelier. If your a photographer and your into architectural photography it a must. It will...

I remember it as a very interesting spot with a great vista of the city...its been a while since I have been there but at night I believe you can see the city lights and stars quite clearly.

One of the most unique and beautiful churches I have seen. Try to see it with the chandelier on. It's absolutely stunning.

An unique space. The big sanctuary is enlightened through its amazing walls of stained glass on 12 different shades of blue. I do not know if it enlightens the soul on a religious way but it certainly fulfills your desires for great visual pleasure!

We visited this modern church built in the late 60's on a Sunday afternoon at 1:00 after mass had finished. (Best to avoid during 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. mass). Traffic was almost non existent and there was plenty of places to park within the gates. You pass through impressive carved brass doors with the patron Saint John Dom Bosco's... More

What can I say?? A must see in Brasilia! This comes from someone who's rarely amazed by churches. This one doesn't look much like a church outside, but inside....Must see!

Definitively the "Sainte Chapelle" of Brasilia, 500 years after that of Paris! If you have one thing to see in Brasilia, this is it!

Don't expect to be blown away when you are outside. However, once inside it is truly an awesome place due to the light diffused by its stained-glass walls all around this huge square space. The chandelier is another real masterpiece. This church honors the memory of an Italian priest, who dreamt about the future capital of Brazil in the 19th... More
