Brazil, Brasilia, Santuario Dom Bosco

Santuario Dom Bosco, Brasilia

Dom Bosco church was designed by Oscar Niemeyer's student Carlos Alberto Naves and is dedicated to Bosco, a 19th-century Italian priest whose writings, some say, prophesied the creation of Brasilia. All the walls of the church were made of blue stained glass which gave the whole church a blue-tinged light. In the middle of the square church a 2tons heavy crystal chandelier is hanging from the ceiling.
