If you are an architect/art, enthusiast you'll be awestruck by the beautiful structure, pinnacles, the statues, the history of the church's reconstruction, the smaller church in the back with the thought provoking bronze, wall size sculpture and.......
If you practice the same faith, you'll enjoy the private prayer room, the candles and all.
If you believe in a different faith, you'll feel the peace and serenity inside.
I feel that the existing aura captures all in a positive way.
$5 admission, get the tour guide for sure ( it makes a difference), try going when the famous Organist plays. There are also plenty of eatery options nearby.
