Brasília was born here, and from this chapel you can get a glimpse of what was the epic construction of an entire city in just three years. Before visiting, make some research on Google to aknowledge the history of the place. Otherwise it will be just a funny looking church for you.

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 church is really close to the daily life of the citizens and it has the most iconical tiles from Athos Bulcão (the modernist plastic artist that worked with Niemeyer). Try to get to know a little bit more of its history, and I... More

Very nice place to visit in Brasilia. The little church is beautiful, designed by Niemeyer and with decorative tiles by Brasilia artist Athos Bulcão. But there are two other details about your visit. The first is the location of the church, adjacent to one of the nicest residencial blocks of Brasilia, the SQS 308, which has its garden designed by... More

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.
