“Beautiful Building”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Beautiful Church with a lot of history. The interior is very nice, although different from what you might see in other Catholic Basilicas

“seriously dude”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

the best little church anywhere in the land. Stunning. 10 minutes and you're happy you climbed the steps. Right across from the National Gallery. A no brainer if there ever was one.

“Notre Dame Basilica”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Very interesting and serene even with the crowds inside.
The brasswork was amazing and the Basilica dome equally so.
The only dislike which is not really a dislike is that once you have seen one Basilica you have seen them all, just variations in architecture.

“Inspiring”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

It is a good idea to grab a brochure at the entrance which tells you the history of almost each single altar and monument on its grounds. Too bad the floor is closed.
