We just happened to catch a children's chorus singing in the sanctuary, so our experiences was not the normal one, but very enjoyable. The grounds were beautiful as was the neighboring plaza.

This church can be seen as you exit the train station in the distance. Once inside you are immediately struck by the beautiful sculptures and murals above you. The art work is awe inspiring as your gaze is directed upward just as it is in the Vatican and St Peter's. For a little church in a little town, this one... More

Lovely church and nice little museum. Take the elevator to the top of the bell tower. Nice views. Minimal cost for a nice quiet experience

Had read that it was very nice, so stopped by in the early evening just as the bells were ringing. Happened on a rosary service that was well-attended by locals of all ages. The paintings and murals throughout the church are lovely, and I spent a cool and memorable 45 minutes or so there.

I was wrong because this Sanctuary is an added attraction spiritually. My group had an appointment for a Holy Mass at noontime. When we arrived , there was a mixed-up of which Chapel to be used. Workers like... More

The decoration could be considered to be overdone but we liked it. Do not forget to climb the clock tower (by elevator) for a breathtaking view.
