  • We wanted to visit this church but missed it as it was closed to be open later for Easter mass. It looked impressive from outside and is on my list for next time visit.

  • The information on the sign outside the door is not up to date. Tours are ONLY on Sunday, Mass is Tuesday & Thursday at 12:05. I wish I had known this. I would have loved to see the whole church...

  • Extremely beautiful interior here! It's always a good idea to check the hours of operation so that you can get a look inside and take some photos. Note that they actually hold mass here so they can be running mass while you are visiting
  • Wonderful place. Beautiful drawings on the windows. And the place hase silent effect on you once you enter the Basilica.
