I've seen many incredible churches before, but these windows were stunning! Take it all in. Go to the corners where the pink windows meet the blue ones. Look closely at the glass...it's beautiful! It was one of my favorite things in Brasilia. In fact, it...More

This church/shrine was well worth the short walk from the hotel sector. Inside it was beautiful with a huge single span concrete ceiling with a geometric design which reflected the elongated stained glass mosaic windows. So beautiful and if you’re so inclined a great place...More

Another must see church that is free to enter and awe inspiring. It is a little hard to find on your own but well worth the bother

That kind of place where a Wow! comes out of your mouth as soon as you enter. So just go, enjoy the very special effects of cristals, lights and shadows... and have a little spiritual moment (not only pictures). Pray for Brazil

This church is a place where you find peace and feel the presence of God! There is no walls around the church. The structure is glassy in blue and that’s why you find peace and feel in heaven. I strongly recommend this Sanctuary.

Dom Bosco Sanctuary is a great place for those in search of reflection time. The atmosphere invites you to pray.

Nothing about Brasilia is ordinary and this church was no exception. Really unusual but stunning design both inside and out. Best to go in the morning or afternoon with the light streaming in through the beautiful stained glass windows. Worth a visit!

Magnificent architecture with marvelous stained glass window and chandelier, this church also depicts a wonderful altar and statues. The sound though, may get a little messy during masses with a large crowd, but most of the time it is not and very much worth a...More

If you have time and you want to see a place outside the usual touristic route, Santuario Don Bosco is the right place. It would astonish you with his blue colors and calm majesty. If you come from Torino... well... then it is a must...More
