“Stupendous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

extraordinarily beautiful -- everything covered in gold leaf. Definitely worth a visit. We happened to be there on a Sunday morning during a mass and didn't have to buy a ticket!

The most beautiful interior of a church that I've ever seen, even compared to some that I've seen in Europe.

“Simply stunning interior”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Beautiful decoration inside the church. Relatively inexpensive. Not really "into" churches but this one was really worth the visit.

What a beautiful place! It was so stunning I wish I had had someone to share it with because it is so difficult to describe how stunning it is!
