The Basilica is beautiful inside . Love the ceilings and the dome showing the life of St. Philomena,it also has the body of the Holy Cure. It has side alters and beautiful statues inside, the alters i lovely & simple. When you visit the Basilica it is also good time to see the shrine and house of St. John Vianny
