This Catholic Church is masterpiece of the famous Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. It is situated on the Eixo Monumental (Monumental Axis Avenue) in Brasilia, the capital city of Brazil. It is a must visit for the religious and non-religious people alike that was built in 1970. It is a modern and unusual cathedral. It is not big at all and it has a generous amount of glass art work on the walls that give it a freshness feeling not too common of religious buildings. Even though it is a religious place, the crowd of tourists, many of them wearing bermuda shorts and clothing which is not appropriate (there is a huge sign at the entrance stating so), takes away the religious mood of the church. In case you are the religious type and feel annoyed by the crowd, there is a small chapel underneath the church where you can pray, meditate and strengthen your faith. Its entrance to the chapel is on the left side of the altar. Saturday is usually a good day for a visit. There is a lot of parking space in the whereabouts.
