  • The major attraction of this sanctuary, are the stained glass Windows in blue tones and give the local peace and tranquility. We arrived at a time when they were washing, didn't compromise the visit, but got boring. The place is beautiful, worth the visit.

  • The Don Bosco sanctuary and an architecture out of the series and a religious point no comment is made with various crystal glasses by highlighting a large chandelier in the center of the sanctuary.

  • It's a very beautifull place, but if you are looking for peace and quiet to meditate and conect to spiritual energy, don't go - turists just can't stay quiet for a bit.
  • A must see. Austere surface that completely changes once you go inside.
  • A must see destination in Brasilia. This modern church has mind-blowing architecture and an eerie and calming interior. The space is a vast cube; I cannot understand how the ceiling supports itself: it is a giant slab of concrete without supports that appears to float in the air.
  • I really loved in this church. Also I visited the Catedral de Brasilia but I prior to recommend here. I don't know what is the reason but really big chandelier hanging from the roof was lighted when I just visit here.(as few minutes later turned it off) it's feeling like to be really holy.
  • Don't miss this spectacular church!! It is simply breathtaking! The day we visited, it was embellished with white flowers for a wedding....with mirrors covering the center aisle....just gorgeous!!

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.
