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!

Not an arresting view .. it is small but very near the superquadras which were the first residential structures built as designed by Lucio Costa.. The church is interesting architecturally and the also the tiles by Athos Bulcao can be seen here...

It's designed to look like a nun's wimple. As a part of a day tour, it will put it all into context, how the residential "wings" of the city were designed with the community churches, schools, etc. The whole city is an architectural treasure,

Just a simple, small church with some blue tiles on its side. Nothing that special. Nice place to look around and take a few minutes to relax
