This church is as beautiful as any we have seen in Europe. The acoustics are wonderful and it is easily accessed from the interstate.

Easy parking on the street out front. This basilica is worth the visit. A beautiful, historic church on a lovely square.

Gorgeous cathedral. The stained glass was beautiful. The alter was breathtaking. We quietly walked through the sanctuary and enjoyed the peaceful, spiritual time.

The Cathedral is really well done. The red and white ceiling are unique. There is a nice printed brochure available near the door so you can read about the history of the Cathedral and the meaning of the art and windows. I highly recommend this.
