Sao Sebastiao

Next to the heart of Rio de Janeiro’s business district is a tall, conical-shaped gray building. From the outside, it just looks out of place. Inside, however, it is spectacular. Four floor-to-ceiling stained glass windows rise 210 feet from floor to ceiling, and a cross-shaped “skylight” appears at the top. Offically called the Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro, it is dedicated to Saint Sebastian, the patron saint of Rio. The structure was designed so that its windows could always remain open and allow cross-breezes to cool people inside. Overhanging “ledges” keep out the rain.
