Inaugurated in 1958, Igrejinha N.S. De Fatima church was the first masonry chapel to be built in Brasilia. Designed by modernist architect Oscar Niemeyer, the small, peaceful building resembles a nun's hat.

  • I was behind this church because it was marked on the map as a tourist destination. The Church has a small, but is curiously well planned to draw attention. I liked.

  • A small church, but very pretty. When we arrived, was having a Christening. After, we went in to get some shots. Pity that the day was very cloudy. External photos will be a little dark.

  • The Church has its picturesque symbolism for the natives of Brasilia. Very intimate, small but of great religious and architectural value, with the stroke of the architect and Athos Bulcão. If you have time, it's worth a quick stop.
