From the outside it is already impressive, but from the inside even more! When you talk on a far end, and keep your ear at the wall, you can really hear the other person very well talking to you via the walk! Don't leave this city without going in

I'm neither catholic, nor religious, but I could have stayed here for hours. Beautiful architecture, soul refreshing atmosphere, lovely light. Must see, and be inspired.

I live in Brasilia and i go very often to the Cathedral. Its architecture is the most impressive attraction, but it is a quiet and peace place. Outside, you'll be able to see four big statues of St. John, St. Matthew, St. Mark and St. Luke. Inside the church, you will see some pieces of art, like a Michelangelo's Pieta... More

Beautiful cathedral. There's a store inside for souvenir purchases. It is free of charge; however, there are a few merchants at the entrance...

The arches and modern conception of a cathedral is worthwhile to see and reflection. Have to go downstairs and see mystery rooms.

This is the most beautiful monument in Brasília. Remember to look up to see the Cathedral angels. Also, if you are close to the circular wall and say something, the other person in the other side of the wall can listen your voice as you were by his side.
