Blue in all its glory! The Santurario is one of the most beautiful and serene places on earth. I would love to have an entire day to sit inside and experience the changing tones of blue.

Modern church with fabulous shimmering Murano glass throughout. Time your visit for Sunday evening mass if you can.

The cathedral shows how is the architecture at Brasilia, modern, make sure to be quiet and take photos without flash, otherwise you might bother the priest and the people around it

Even if you have been to every church, in every city, ever, don't miss this. I've been to too many religious buildings to count, but this is better than 95% of the rest!

WOW! This church is nothing to look at from the outside but as the saying goes, don't judge a book by its cover. The inside of this church is breathtaking. I've never seen anything like it.

Not very religious person myself, but this place is actually one of the most amazing temples of any religion I have ever visited.! The blue color you get from it is breathtaking and gives the temple an amazing feeling of joy and tranquility... check it out

Once you walk in you can feel the peace and grace inside it. The lighting is beautiful blue and the central hall was covered in glass wich reflected the blue light and the crusifix and altar. I have to say its a must when you visit Brasilia. In between all the crazy around you, its really nice to take time... More

outside, the church looks a little bare and weird, but when you walk in.... guauuuu. The church is covered with blue stained glass, giving it a light and look unique and overwhelming. If you go to Brasilia, this is must!!!

Here is a new twist to stained glass windowed churches... The outside is not at all impressive but the inside is a different story!... Made to commemorate the Italian priest who dreamt of Brasilia, it is worth a visit .. as you enter, suddenly, you are transported to a different world... don't forget to go to the small gift shop...
