Facade of Glória Church with Corcovado in the background

Besides its beautiful location and popularity as a worshipping place, the Gloria Church played an important role in the imperial period of Brazil, starting with the arrival of D. João VI in 1808. The layout was innovative for the time, and consists of two interwined octagonal prisms, giving the church an almost round, singular appearance. It has only one tower, below which is a kind of porch, also having a admirable limestone doorway.
