This extraordinary modern cathedral is well worth a visit. From the outside it doesn't look much but once inside the four blue-windowed walls and the huge central chandelier (not always lit) are unforgettable. It is easy to see why it is so popular for weddings....More

As other reviewers have said, it doesn't look so much from the outside but inside is beautiful. Enjoy the light glittering through the blue glass and the peaceful ambiance. Useful info, downstairs there is a water fountain, toilet and gift shop. Definitely worth a visit,...More

A must see place to know and reflection! If possible go at night when the lights are on. Beautiful architecture.

It does not look much from the outside, but as you step in... Make sure to visit on a sunny day, preferably in the late afternoon. I'm not much of a religious man, but this place has something special.

Wonderful church dedicated to Dom Bosco. The stained glass work is incredible! Better time to visit is around 17:00 (5:00pm) when the sunset lights up the glass work! Don't be fooled by the simples exterior, the interior is unique!

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

One of the most iconic places in Brasilia. My parents got married in this church, as many others. The blue tall glass panels are a view on their own. Daytime is better for the panels, but if you can manage to attend to a wedding...More

I really like this church, it is one of my prefer place in the town! The wall is made by blue stained glass, with the light of the sun it seems that is blue inside! When you go inside, the atmosphere is blue, it seems...More
