A modern pyramid.

Opened in 1979, The Metropolitan Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro, also known as São Sebastião, stands at the historic centre of the city.

This modern-style building is conical in shape, with an inside diameter of 96 metres, and can accommodate a congregation of up to 20,000 people. Designed by Ivo Antônio Calliari (1918 - 2005), this unusual monument owes a large part of the beauty of its construction to its coloured stained glass windows.
