“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

An amazing basilica! Comparable to anything you would see in Europe and well worth the visit. It's overwhelming but not to be missed.

“Busy Place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

This is a spectacular basilica and well worth the visit for interested individuals. However, this place constantly holds special events and it is important to plan accordingly. It took 4 tries before I could get in there on a day that did not have a concert or some other invite only event.

“ALL WOOD!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Be sure to take the free tours offered in either French or English - short but very interesting history.

“Breathtaking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

I would recommend doing the video show that is offered twice an evening. Price is very reasonable. You'll receive a headset to listen to the audio of the show which is offered in a few different languages. Although the show is a bit lengthy (probably not recommended for children) it ended with a bang :)
