The Basillica is well worth the trip, especially on a sunny day when the light shines through the stained glass window. The only thing that took away from the experience were other tourists who were taking pictures and chatting on cell phones while services were underway.

Also worth a visit is the cemetery under the church. It is beautiful and calm. You can find the entrance between all the electronic shop kiosks on the main road.

If you've toured the cathedrals and Basilicas of Europe this one is still nice to see but nothing spectacular. If you're new to taking in these sorts of things then this one is a must-see. The stained glass is lovely, as are the views from the towers (the highest ones should be avoided by people afraid of heights).

Cathedral is magnificent, truly awe inspiring. Make sure you go up and walk catwalk across what is essentially the cathedral ceiling, then proceed up narrow ladder to outside and up the spire for incredible views. also stop in cafe in another spire for coffee or drinks, and more views.

We were sad not to get inside but from what we saw it was nice. A little espensive for what we got. The gift shop had well priced articles. We enjoyed having a drink in the court yard and it was a beautiful view up top. We did not go all the way up as it felt unsafe and it was a very steep climb. We did not see ant tour guides, only sales people!
