The rather grey, if impressive exterior belies the splendour of the interior, which is simply breath-taking.
It really moved me, gave me a huge jolt.
I wasn't expecting this triumph of marble, gold and magnificence.
It really brings home the power and the glory, even if you are not a believer!
It is sumptuous and quintessentially baroque. The richness of the statues (even the Virgin stands on a huge orb of lapis lazuli), the power of the saints and their reliquaries and the sheer energy of the place, is something that you cannot afford to miss.
