Church at Largo do Machado Square in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Largo do Machado Square is a popular place to catch an inexpensive van to the top of Corcovado to see the Christ the Redeemer statue. While waiting for your ride, you can admire the Mother Church of Our Lady of Glory. The parish was founded by the Brotherhood of the Blessed Sacrament. Construction of the Catholic church was decreed in 1834 and was completed in 1872. Its façade resembles St Martin-in-the-Fields in Trafalgar Square, London.
