Travel photo of the day
Candelaria Church, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Every time I travel outside my home country, I always make it a point to visit a church. During my trip to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in April 2014, the Candelaria Church experience was truly mesmerizing. Among the images I took inside one of Brazil’s biggest and oldest Roman Catholic temples, this one is my favorite. The elaborate paintings and neoclassical architecture of the dome remind me of the historical and grand cathedrals of Europe.
