“A Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

The cathedral is beautiful and we happened to pop in while the choir and soloists were practicing. No matter your faith a spiritual experience.

They were doing work on the outside at the time but still a beautiful peaceful place to stop into. Worth the visit.

“A must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We were told during our Segway Tour that we must stop here. We were so happy we did. I have been to the cathedral in NYC and this was much more beautiful. I cannot even explain the details except to say that I have never seen such beautiful stain glass and stations of the cross. It is absolutely breathtaking.

“Grand Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

May be the most beautiful church I have ever been to. No charge to quietly walk around. Allowed to take pictures. Even if you are not religious, it is worth the time to stop.

“Beautiful Church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

The outstide of the church was being renovated when we visited, however the inside was beautiful. I have been to the iconic churches of Paris and the appearance of this church is on par with those. If you are in the area I recommend taking a peek inside. It's free (donations accepted).
