Valley of Dawn, Brasilia

2.7
#9 of 12 in Historic Sites in Brasilia
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Valley of Dawn, a regional landmark, is the holy city of a local religion known as "Doutrina do Amanhecer" (Doctrine of the Dawn). This doctrine fuses several elements of Christianity, Spiritism, mysticism, Afro-Brazilian religions, ancient Egyptian beliefs, and a fair amount of controversial theories about aliens and UFOs. The focal point of the community, which is made up of psychics and spiritual healers, is the Temple of Dawn, a stone building shaped like an ellipse. Drop by this structure to see the colored labyrinth making up its interior and the enormous statue of Pai Seta Branca, the religion’s main deity. This site, with its unusual mixture of local beliefs and world religions, offers visitors a valuable insight into the region’s culture.

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.

  • An interesting place that is the home of one of Brazil's many sects. With elements of multiple religions and spirituality, it's worthy of a visit. It's only 50km or so outside Brasilia  more »
  • Is a different place, where peace is intertwined with the landscape. Simple place, but that is somewhat cozy. I'm going back to know better, however I recommend walking with better weather and mood!
