Pretty Niemeyer church, worth an hour's visit

This is a pretty Niemeyer church, demonstrating all of his architectural techniques. Not the easiest to find if you don't know the city, but worth an hour's visit.

Always lovely to see. Check out the iconic Athos Bulcão tiles on the walls. On weeknights, look for the little shawarma stand nearby. Best shawarma in Brasilia.

Nice small church. Located in a quite area and very open since the climate is nice year around. Shaped like the hat of a nun.

It is a very nice, little church but not so easy to find, because of all the one way and dead end streets arround.

This teeny tiny church is wonderful! I would go out of my way to check it out if you appreciate history or art. Very cool.

Great modern architecture in small size. Beautiful, innovative design, inspired in Le Corbusier, an inner space open to the neighbourhood, landmark tiles by Athos Burcão covering the exterior at its best.

For Catholics, this is a very special place. Built during the governmemnt of Brasilia's founder J. Kubitschek, this small chapel is very dear to the city's inhabitants. Worth seeing it!

I was taken here by my diplomat friends who used to worship here when they lived in the diplomatic apartments nearby. Yet another architectural gem, it was built for Sara, wife of the President when Brasilia was founded. The church can only hold about twenty people but can be extended by chairs outside. The blue exterior tiles are very attractive... More

For me, it wasn't a "MUST DO" in Brasilia, but I stumbled upon while walking the Ala Sul and it was worth the visit. It's very original.
