A very religious place. Nothing to do there, just look. It's a church after all. Just be sure to get the best moments to visit and don't forget to take picture 😉

It is, in fact, one of the most beautiful constructions in Brasilia (a city dominated by the modernistic touch of Oscar Niemeyer) Not as beautiful from the inside, in my opinion...

An excellent attraction in Brasília. It is just one of the Oscar Niemeyer's Project and you can access this by public transportation. The architecture is incredible and worth seeing.
