Church Tourist Spot
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. Underneath the sweeping white roof, the walls are covered with brilliant blue tiles designed by Athos Bulcão, featuring a repeated white dove. Arrange to visit Igrejinha N.S.

  • One of the landmarks of the city, with tiles by Athos Bulcão, unique architecture and charm of small-town Chapel

  • Apart from religion, I consider a very good place to visit, is a very small, but the architecture of the building is magnificent. It is not an obligatory stop in Brasilia, go if you have time to enjoy.

  • the architectural design is cute! the Church is beautiful! When you get there, you want to take pictures, enjoy the work and pray. However, I did not give this sort ... was wedding day. as the Church is opened, respectfully followed part of the ceremony, but the ceremony did not have the same respect for public assets. There was a pile of horrendous chairs and power cables played outside, in front of the tiles by athos bulcão. a shame! all photos came out lousy. Let's be more orderly, please! the Church is all!

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.
