Most people know Niemeyer's Cathedral of Brasília, which is perhaps the most important landmark of Brasilía. Fewer people know Dom Bosco, but many of those who have actually visited it consider it to be even more beautiful than the Cathedral. A must visit.

The tall, blue stained glass windows invokes Heaven in this church. It's large, spacious, but peaceful. It actually makes you feel small, humble in the face of God. I strongly recommend a visit and some quiet time here.

Fairly average looking on the outside, but extraordinarily beautiful with overwhelming blue stained glass windows throughout in the interior.

Another church which is well worth a detour to visit. All the walls are lovely, made from stained glass. Not far from the city centre.

The most terrific church in the capital of Brazil! It is a wonderful work of art, made of glass and steel.

While living in Brasilia I always wanted to visit this place but had not had time. Suddenly a work meeting was scheduled very close by and I went there during my lunch break. It is indeed a beautiful place, with the blue glass panes playing with the outdoor lighting.

This catholyc church is full of blue glass, what gives it a great atmosphere. You have to go see it to understand. We can't describe certains feelings. You have to experience them. Don't miss this visit. Even if you are not catholyc. It doesn't really matters. Go there...

Although it's located near downtown, the outside it's not suited for the Sanctuary. Anyway that's a minor problem, especially if you go there by the firsts or the lasts hours of Sun, and you will probably find a orange outside and a blue peaceful inside.
