This is a church like no other

This church follows the tradition of Brasilia of avant-garde architecture, it's in fact hard to believe you're in a church when walking in.

If you are in Brasilia you should go and visit this church! In the Center of the church you´re able to see a chandelier with 7.400 pieces of Murano glass with 3 Ton and 5 meters large. During the night this huge sheen is the only source of light inside of the temple. Time of mass: Monday to Saturday: 7... More

A modern and beautiful church. Visiting the day you'll see the sun light thought the stained glass, and visiting at night the light of the amazing chandelier!!!

Absolutely beautiful. You must see it to appreciate it. The sun shining through the small stained glass pieces looked magical.

Everytime I visit this church with friends I don't tell them exactly what to expect. The look om their face when they enter and get overwhelmed by the blue is worth a picture. One of the must-sees of Brasilia.

from the outside seems odd but once you enter the building its just amazing. The stained glass windows are just amazing! Inside you feel that you are in a spiritual place indeed. Definitely worth a visited

A peaceful church whose only light comes through blue stained glass from ceiling to floor in all four walls creating a fantastic blue atmosphere not seen anywhere else.

The prettiest stained glass I've ever seen. The whole room is like a wall of sparkle and the chandelier in the center is gorgeous. Well worth a visit.

If or when you are in need of a bit of calm and serenity when in Brasilia, this is definitely the place to go. For most of the time it is not busy and one can very easily sit there in total silence, bathed in a surrealistic blue light. It is not the same size as many of the other... More
