Metropolitan Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro
Resembling a huge, futuristic Mayan pyramid, it is impossible not to be amazed by this architectural downtown wonder. Officially opened in 1976, while still incomplete, it has a capacity of over 20,000 people. The interior is a virtual cavern, with an open space 300 feet high, no supporting columns and a granite rock that forms the altar. No matter what you think about its unusual exterior beehive shape, the four huge stained glass windows will grab you. The underground part of the cathedral houses the Sacred Arts Museum.

We had taken a tour at Rio and one of the visited places was Catedral Metropolitana at Rio do Janeiro. It was a surprise to find there Mrs. Donna Summer and her husband. After this tour the morning after we have taken breakfast with them at the hotel, she talk to me when we have entered . We talk a little bit and I´ve remembered I´ve known Mrs. Summer when I was a boy at Chile.
