“Brilliantly done Basilica with stained glass paintings!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

This is one of the best Basilicas I have ever visited. The stained glass paintings all over the interior are amazing, absolutely breathtaking. It is very much worth spending 2 hours of your time in awe of the Gothic architecture and the paintings.

A quiet cathedral in the heart of the city, with stunning stained glass windows. Well worth the drive. Must visit!

It was a respite to sit in there for a moment after our full day of wandering in pondy. Quite well maintained and calm place.
