Beautiful!

We love to visit the basilica. Easter Sunday Mass was amazing. The architecture and art is beautiful-especially after the renovation. It is a must see for visitors.

Stop here every time in the city. Love the mosaic of the Last Supper in the side chapel and the statue of Saint Patrick.

Made a quick stop here and it is amazingly beautiful. Not as nice on the inside as some of the other places of worship in the area, but it is filled with gold and marble and if worth a view

This is such a beautiful church. You could not go into that church and be at awe as you look at the stained glass windows and side chapels! Well worth the trip in!

The church is mall for a cathedral but beautiful inside. Great example of colonial mission churches in the U.S. At least worth a look when downtown

Stopped in here and took in the view of the artistry of the church building. Very nice art work here and it was a mostly quite visit (exception being the redneck idiots with a MP3 type tour guide being used without head phones so 7 of them could hear one player). Take a seat and soak in the art work.... More

We attended Easter Sunday mass there, and it was wonderful. A truly beautiful church, in a great location, with so much history. A must-see.
