The entering is quite a masterpiece, walk down the black corridor and let the interior of the church "appear" in front of you, luminous, spacious and magnificent. Something you should see while in Brasilia.

A nice church at the heart of the city. Nice take a few photos. Recommend for weekend visit especially for those that are new to Brasilia.

One of the trademark of Brasilia and one of the 'must-see' buildings along the main road of all ministeries and governant buildings. Interesting acess and than a much larger church, very light and open. Nice to pay a visit.

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!

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).
