This is a modern church with unique architecture, a must see in the capital, by Oscar Niemeyer. There's nothing similar anywhere around the globe!

“Keep on the list for Brasilia”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Visited again after a number of years and was pleased to see that damaged, faded tiles and stained glass had been repaired / replaced.

The architecture is one of Niemeyer’s better uses of physical space. Acoustically impressive.

Better on a cloudy day as the inside gets warm.

View the elements of the Eucharist from afar to appreciate the bread and chalice.

Was disappointed to see the grounds outside were not in better state of upkeep (what with World Cup around the corner).

“Beautiful but very hot”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Very beautiful, with an unusual architecture, very interesting place. Unfortunately inside is very very hot, so it's better not go there at the hotter periods of the day.

“Beautiful Cathedral designed by Niemeyer”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

This Cathedral is a must see in Brasilia. It's really beautiful inside and there's a beautiful replica of Pietá that was made in Italy.
