Owner description: Another structure by award-winning architect Oscar Niemeyer, this landmark cathedral features stunning interior glasswork.

This is one of the extraordinary Brazilian modern glass conical churches, characteristic of Oscar Niemeyer's architecture (as Rio's Cathedral). Although they might loose a little in praying atmosphere, they feature a new conception in religious buildings, with the suspended central crucifix, and the predominancy of the vitraux.

The title pretty much sums it up. We could look in. Our cousin from Brasilia told us how he played on the bare concrete floor when it was being built. They were preparing for a wedding, and everything was spruced up to a T.

Niemeyer again !
The glasswork is outstanding.
Whilst forming part of the Exio Monumental its location gives it a feeling of isolation.

As you are in the area it is not worth missing.

Great church with painted glass spread all over as the interior! Different time of the day gives you different feel as the light shines through the glass interior! Beautiful!

Liked the catedral, especialy in the morning light. Also consider visiting the museum nearby as well as the parliament and the Santuario Dom Bosco
