“Great views”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

for $2 you can climb up the clock tower and even further up, on some parts like a via-ferrata :) but the view is great. the basilica itself was renovated or strengthened sometime ago, but only with concrete. So eg the tower is almost solid concrete from inside. but its worth climbing up the tower.
