It is like starry night shelter from implacable Brasilia's dry season afternoon sun. A masterpiece of stained glass artwork. Don't miss.

If you get the chance please visit here. The exterior is consistent with the rest of Brasilia, but the peace and clam of the interior combined with the most amazing light from all around has to be seen to be believed.

The lost beautiful view from inside! You must see the stained-glass windows! It's a peaceful place! Just go you won't regret! I think it's much more beautiful than the catedral but go see them both and make your one conclusion

Impressive glass work, makes this the Brazilian Notre Dame. If you like churches, stop by a moment. It is close by the National Cathedral, so it can be done by taxi easily

Try to visit the church around noon, when the light is at its highest inside. The church has a simple architecture that shows the beauty of the blue glass. Its chandelier is also beautiful. A peaceful retreat in the city.

This was my favourite sight during the few hours we spent in Brasilia. And it was totally unexpected. You don't need to be religious to enjoy the play of light and colour inside the Santuario. Just marvel at the architecture that allows the interior to...More
