    Nice and cozy place. I was at a wedding during the day. It was perfect. It's pretty tiny, supports only 40 people, but it is a free for small ceremonies celebration.

    Location of activities for Catholics, a lot of comfort in the Chapel and the work of the years 60, with adequate parking and near the entrance as long as it's not in days of festive ceremonies where they need to leave the car a little further away.

    In the middle of a residential neighborhood, this lovely small church is worth a visit. Bulcao's tiles are iconic.  more »

Where to stay in Brasilia

Choosing where to stay during your trip to Brasilia can be somewhat difficult. Due to the city's distinctive layout and lack of a historical "center," accommodations have developed in clusters. By far the best range of options surrounds the distinctive green space of Jardim Burle Marx, in the city's two planned hotel districts. You can also find a good selection of lodgings around Vila Planalto, the city's designated political district, which sits not far from Brasilia's main lake. Wherever you decide to stay, make sure it's within reasonable distance of a metro station or bus stop--you'll want good access to public transport in order to easily navigate the city.
