“Visit the Basilica”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Beautiful and impressive Gothic structure on a very grand scale. A series of chapels, the largest pulpit and altar and the highest ceilings! It even houses a copy of Foucault's pendulum.

“Don't judge it by the outside”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

A curious building as from the outside it is very plain and distinctly unremarkable, but once inside it was stunning if somewhat bare in places. Word of caution - my daughter (14) was ordered outside as her shorts were too, err, short. We did warn her!!

“Big church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

From the outside, the church gives a mideval perspective. Walking inside shows how big the church really is. Entrance price is worth taking a look.
