“Magnificent”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

The Basilica rivals anything one can see in Europe. The interior is a true monument to Christ. It is very inspiring and fills one with wonder and a sense of well being. It really is so beautiful.

“Ugly on the outside but very nice on the inside”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

The church does not look as a cathedral. The interior is worth the visit because it is not too far away from other attractions.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Just stop in and see it! It's absolutely one of the most beautiful churches! When we visited we just walked in and there was no one else there. I am not a religious person, but being there just felt good, peaceful...take a moment to view it!

“Quiet place for meditation”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

This cathedral rivals anything in Europe. I was particularly impressed at what good condition everything was in. It was so relaxing to sit and take in the beautiful environment. Not a place for young kids as there were many people praying. Definitely go if you are into beautiful and meaningful places.
