“History and Spirituality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

Doesn't matter what faith, if any, you subscribe to. The building and its contents inspire a bit of awe. Take time to sit and take in the experience, both yours and the ones that people for centuries have encountered.

“Nice visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

Peaceful, charming and historic. Walk thru at your leisure, respecting your surroundings. Later, met some people who attended mass there and they said that it was very worthwhile.

“Disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

Have toured the basilica in St. Louis, MO & was stunned by the mosaics & stained glass. Not so much here--again, mostly the history of the church was the important thing.
