While visiting Washington we kept hearing a bell toll and asked where the sound was coming from. We were told it was the Basilica of which it is the largest one in North America and therefore we had to take a tour. It was amazing, breath taking and full of history. From the paintings, to the Pope's Robe, to the intricate details of the building, everywhere we turned we were in AWW, of how this place really honored the Catholic faith. However, they did not leave out the history of others such as the African American carvings, and the Russian art work, Mosaic tiles that tell history and so on. Do your self and family a favor and go visit the Basilica, even if you are not Catholic, your spirit will be glad you did.
