One of the most appealing of the Brasilia buildings. Definitely worth a stop inside. Lovely stained glass.

Such a beautiful place! The architecture is absolutely insane and the blue windows make the entire room glow on the inside. Was great to see people in there saying there prays aswell, really added to the atmosphere.

The church was one of the highlights of a three-hour tour of Brasilia. The whole stop need not take more than 10 minutes, but the overwhelming blue light that fills the room earns the rare distinction of being impossible to capture on camera. Like much of Brasilia's architecture, the exterior is unimposing and provides few clues about the dramatic interior.... More

This is a great place to see in the city, and provides a surreal experience as you walk inside a jewel-box bathed in bluish-purple light. It's particularly surprising in that it looks so drab from the outside. We were privileged to visit for a friends' christening and WOW what an experience - more like being on a Hollywood red carpet... More

Rather weird building and with the overpowering blue light impact! Different strokes for different folks, the local Symphony was using is as a practice hall which seemed to be a good use.

A most beautiful church! The vitreaux are gorgeus! Not to be missed! The front doors and the chandeliers are also precious. Parking is sort of difficult. If you go around 14h parking will be easier. If you go walking be very careful. Pickpockets may be in the neighborhood.

We went to watch a concert. Beautiful place. Crowed. Be sure to arrive soon if you want to be seated while watching the musicians on Tuesdays nights.

This Church was designed by architect Vasconcelos Naves who I am big fan of his work. Impressive design with many tall arches, and windows stained in various shades of blue. The Chandelier is very impressive so make sure you check that out.

Thank JennyWhitelockOz
