Held in very high reverence, this is supposed to be the 2nd most visited church in the world. We saw people carrying babies, walking on their knees to pay their respects.

Both Basilicas are beautiful! Everywhere I looked I wanted to take a photo. The new one was awesome and inspiring, the old was grand and emotionally moving. But housed beautiful art and remarkable architecture.
