Beautiful church with great historical value. It's situated in Pampulha Lake, which is declared as a world heritage by UNESCO. If you are an architecture lover should go there.

It is a small church, located on a beautiful spot, but besides small it is always closed so you can only look the outside.

This place really gets you to think about that a church really should look like. Oscar Niemeyer had some really new ideas when he designed this place. It is also beautifully located on the Pampulha Lake.

One of the first works of Oscar Niemeyer very typical of his style. Very unique shape and great azulejos. Unfortunately it was not possible to get inside the church.

The church looks nice, it's quite unique. But it's pretty out of town, and really worth going that far.
