Dom Bosco Sanctuary, Brasilia, Carlos Alberto Naves, 1963. Stained glass by Hubert Van Doorne.
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.
Beautiful church, it’s worth your time!
A good place to stay for a while, and pray.
