Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro

Hotels near Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil .

Seat of the Archbishop of Rio de Janeiro, the Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro is a Roman Catholic Church dedicated to Saint Sebastian, the patron saint of the city of Rio de Janeiro. The Cathedral was built between 1964 and 1979, replacing the Old Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro, a more traditional church, which is located in Praca XV Square in downtown Rio, and served as Rio’s head of the Catholic Church from 1808 until 1976.

The current Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro is a modern, conical structure, standing almost 250 feet high, and 315 feet across. The most notable feature of the Cathedral is the series of four rectangular stained-glass panels which soar 210 feet, almost the entire height of the structure, meeting at the roof of the building, where they adjoin in a skylight that takes the form of a cross.

Situated in the Lapa neighborhood of central Rio de Janeiro, the Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro is within easy walking distance of the famous Arcos da Lapa, or Carioca Acqueduct. Local hotel accommodations include the Windsor Asturias Hotel, Ambassador Hotel, Rio’s Presidente Hotel, and the Arcos Rio Palace Hotel. For more information visit
