St. Francis of Assisi Chapel
The building that launched Oscar Niemeyer's architectural career, this chapel is both church and work of art. Anyone, regardless of religious affiliation, will be able to appreciate everything from the signature Niemeyer curves and exterior mosaic work to the various artworks/tiles inside this unique chapel, which is also known as the Pampulha church and is a symbol of Belo Horizonte.
