Great old church, rebuilt after a devastating fire, but even reading that history is fascinating. Don't need to spend a lot of time, but a take a look inside and be impressed.

We didn't go inside the church but the edifice was imposing and very impressive. It covers a large space in downtown Buffalo near Ellicott Square.
