Santuario Dom Bosco, Brasilia Reviews
Beautiful stained glass windows. Best to come early in the morning I am told for best light. Very quiet and ideal for prayer or contemplation unlike some of the other famous religious sites in Brasilia.
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.
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.
