Rio De Janeiro Cathedral - Review

The Metropolitan Cathedral of Saint Sebastian is best known for being the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Sao Sebastiao do Rio de Janeiro. Built between 1964 and 1979, the church is extremely well known for its unusual construction.

The eclectic design attracts tourists from far and wide. Whether you are an art lover or culture seeker this place is certainly one of the must see locations in the city.

Rio De Janeiro Cathedral, Rio De Janeiro Reviews

  • Weird outside structure. Don't look like a church. We couldn't find the entrance to the grounds. Maybe it was closed. Hope to see inside some other time. Looks nice from the outside.

  • Beautiful on the inside, amazing stain glass. Incredible size on the outside, surrounded by other beautiful architecture in the city

  • It was nice to see from far away, with its unique design (it reminds a pyramid). However, when I went inside I did not like. I mean it is nice, do not get me wrong here but I think that there are better places to see. If you want to go there go walking in the downtown. There are many places that worth a visit as well and they are close to this Cathedral.

  • Stopped in for just a few minutes to wonder at the stained glass and architecture - close to where the street car from Santa Teresa let's off.

  • Nice spot for pics. Is a modern style cathedral so don't expect the gotic overdetailed typical place. If you are not religious at all will be waste of time.
