Wonderful country, can not be described in words, to Brazil to see the World Cup came to Rio de Janeiro, has not been organized part of Brazil's travels, not lazy, but warm and kind Brazilians are by no means the media commentary, let us feel and move too much, too many photos, really do not know where to start... First, look at Rio Cathedral, also known as the Cathedral of the Celestial Ladder. The appearance of this cathedral is different from that of any other church I have ever seen. Looking at the appearance of the cathedral, it is a concrete conical building with numerous windows. Into the church, stained glass runs high from top to bottom, vertical line, like a staircase, leading to the dome-embedded, transparent cross. Under the dome, a statue of Jesus bound to the golden cross is suspended in the sky, which is also unique. The design of the church is simple but ingenious, which is unforgettable.
Rio de Janeiro Cathedral was built in 1964 and completed in 1976. It is a modern building with reinforced concrete structure. It's hard to imagine a church for the first time to see this conical building. The modern style church is 75 meters high and 106 meters in diameter at the bottom. It can hold 20,000 people. Because the church is like a ladder, it is called "ladder" cathedral. When you enter a church, you can feel the magnificence of the church. Looking up, the top of the church is a huge glass cross. Sunlight shines through the cross, making the hall bright and soft. Above the rostrum, there is a huge wooden statue of Jesus'crucifixion. Although it is common, the scene of Jesus being nailed on the cross still shocks the soul. On the back is the window of "top of heaven and earth" and the sunshine becomes colorful through the window, adding mysterious color to the whole church.
This is a very unique church, which looks like a conical cooling tower. If there is not a cross that does not feel like a church at all, but there are holes in the sky, stained glass stretches to the top, the light of the cross shape is particularly sacred. There is a feeling of being shrouded and guided by the upward crucifixion. It feels sacred.
A church with a peculiar shape, beautiful interior and better overall feeling is worth visiting and experiencing western beliefs!
Change the concept of the old church, no trace of European-style appearance, a new concept, the internal momentum is grand, high-end atmosphere, the Bible story on stained glass and the glass cross shape on the dome, very perfect use of natural light, profound implication!
