Must see if you are in Brasilia. Considering the other attractions close by this area is a must see.
Beautiful semi subterranean cathedral that sums up the design philosophy of this city.
Light and spacious area that seem bigger inside than outside.
We have been staying a little far away from the city center, but decided to walk anyways. This cathedral is architecturally interesting from the outside, and absolutely beautiful inside. Definitely suggest a visit.
This monument was designed by Oscar Niemeyer, The cathedral is a hyperboloid structure constructed from 16 concrete columns, weighing 90 tons each. Under this is suspended a 2,000-square-meter (22,000 sq ft) stained glass work originally created in 1990 by Marianne Peretti, in shades of blue,...More
Very different architecture for a worship place, designed by a communist, on the boulevard of the political power in the country's capital. Worth a visit. The light is present everywhere in the cathedral that is an iconic of Brasilia's architecture. A must see.
Is a pleasure to down the entrance and be surprised by the colorful view, the altar filled with white flowers. The Angels clinging up above like guarding the altar: is simply perfect. The spaces inside are enchanted by the stetic of the stone and Cristal...More
One of the greatest architectural wonders of Brasilia is without doubt its unusual cathedral, a work by the self-declared communist Oscar Niemeyer, which shows that you don't have to be a Christian to build a great church. From far already one can see this hyperboloid...More
Is a different and amazing cathedral. Not very nice to get in to. Brasilia, despite a planned and new city doesn´t care much where you park your car or even if you want to walk if there are safe and nice sidewalks. But the Cathedral...More
This architectural beauty of Brasilia shows the spirit of the design of Brasilia a quiet place to stroll and enjoy the architecture, art.
Not the best place to go to a concert! The acoustics are not very good.
The cathedral has a grand entrance across the open parkland with a parade of statues. The Oscar Niemeyer crown of thorns design is legendary. I had expected such an impressive building to be larger (capacity is perhaps 500) but I was impressed by its airy,...More
A must see in the city. Visited after lunch and the place was very quiet. A few students and people praying. Very calm place, with beautiful hanging statues and a knick knack shop inside to buy a few gifts for friends. Must visit and also...More
what to wear NewYears Eve -- Dark suite or light? (2 Replies)
Hi Everyone, We will be at the Four Seasons for New Years Eve and are a bit confused about what to wear -- particularly for the men in our group... my mother insists that as New Years, a dark suit will be in order. i'm trying to explain to her that BA is not some sub-tropical island where "island dress code " is the order of the day and European dress-code conventions are taken as cues for more formal attitre. I don't think she comprehends that it is actually Summer in Argentina while...More

I would also go for dark for New Year's Eve. Although if it is a suit, you will be fine with both I find darks is better for a formal evening.
Taxi cost (14 Replies)
Hello How much shall it cost if I take a taxi from hotel in Copacabana to the cable car station to go up to Sugar Loaf? I just like to get an idea. And How much will it cost to take a taxi from Copacabana to Catedral Metropolitana? Thanks

Around 10 Reais if you have an honest driver and no traffic. There is also a bus that goes along Av. Nossa Senhora de Copacabana that reads "Urca", but the taxi will be faster and easier.

Taxis are cheap. Public transport is crowded at rush hours. Your itinerary is relatively relaxed. There are lots of excellent children's playgrounds.
