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.

Truly rated as one of the best attractions in Brasilia. Designed by Naimeyer, this cathedral is beautiful to look at both from inside as well as outside. Must do when visiting the city!
