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.

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
