Very nice cathedral with large stain glass windows depicting the saints and Jesus very colorful and beautiful. Its white masonry exterior adds to character of what a Basilica should look like. There was mass still be conducted inside while we were there. You can even get some holy/blessed water at the outside rear of the Basilica. Water is free but containers, if you need one, are sold nearby. If you don't like crowds, don't go the early part of Aug, because pilgrimages from many cities including San Jose, bring an estimated 1.5 - 2 million worshippers to the Basilica for a couple of days! So plan accordingly.
