Little church in honor to Our Lady of Fatima, this is an historical architectural icon in Brasilia, from architect Oscar Niemeyer. Worth a 2 minutes visit.

This temple was designed by Oscar Niemeyer (who designed a lot in Brasilia) and constructed in 100 days, in order of the wife of the President JK. It was build in favour of their daughter to help her to fight her desease.

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.
