Description
The Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral de Brasilia), Brasilia’s primary church for the Archdiocese, holds masses for over one million Christians in the Brazilian capital. The cathedral’s seemingly ... Read more
minimalist exterior of 90 ton pillars interspersed with stained glass conceals a reproduction of the Shroud of Turin within its crypt. Brasilia, like the District of Columbia in the USA and the Federal District (Mexico City) in Mexico, is the seat of the federal government. There are over 2.5 million residents in Brasilia, making the Cathedral the focal point of worship for this overwhelmingly Catholic nation.

One of the main attractions to see in Brasilia. Interesting and very unique design for a Roman Catholic Church, built in 1960.

If you want to be impressed you should this Cathedral. From the outside you can't imagine what to expect. It is one of the city monuments around Brasilia projected by Oscar Neimeyer.

The Brasilia cathedral is one of the most famous monuments built by architect Oscar Niemeyer. The cathedral is shaped as a circle and inside the entire ceiling is made of glass vitrals. Looking from the outside, you have no idea of what you will see inside, it was a pleasant surprise.

The most beautiful church ever, a project by one of the most importants brazilian architects. On the entrance, pass through a dark passage to find the light was a fenomenal idea replicated in many others churchs around the world. The angels hanging like in heaven and the beautiful colored glass make this church unique.

A national landmark and the most impressive hyperbolic style cathedral built in 1970 by the famous architect Oscar Niemeyer. The structure is stylishly built in concrete with a glass roof opening to the sky along with vibrant stained glasses. The interior features three sculptures of angels suspended by steel cables, an oval Baptistery covered by painted ceramic tiles and a crypt where a replica of the ‘Shroud of Turin’ is preserved.

De todas as obras projetadas por Oscar Niemeyer em Brasília, a Catedral para mim é a mais bonita. Sou encantada pelo formato arredondado com várias colunas que se unem no topo, pelo estilo modernista, por todos os detalhes do lado de dentro, com os vitrais em tons de azul. Gosto especialmente os anjos enormes, suspensos, como se estivessem flutuando, que são maravilhosos. Do lado de fora há esculturas dos quatro evangelistas. A Catedral é tombada pelo Iphan (Instituto do Patrimônio Histórico e Artístico Nacional). Independente de questões religiosas, é uma visita que vale por ser um ponto turístico mesmo.

Uma incrível obra de arte cravada no centro da capital federal. Um local para reflexão, meditação e uma conversa com Deus. Vale a visita mesmo para quem não tem religião.
