Don't miss it! It's a must see in a beautiful area. The tour guide offered some very interesting facts and was entertaining. A good time to go on weekdays is between 9:00 AM and noon in between masses. Quite a breath taking masterpiece.

Just ti see the beautiful ceilings is worth the trip in itself. Parking is a bit difficult to find, so if you can park on a metered street, then your lucky. Or else, you'd have to park some ways at a parking garage.

This "building" is more than just a statement of faith: it is a living, breathing work of art. From the outside it looks drab, uninspiring and almost ugly. Once you cross the entrance, however, you will be gobsmacked by the dazzling mosaics (all 43 million...More

Saw this as #3 on Trip Advisor so decided to go. The workmanship inside is simply stunning and no pictures can do it justice. You should go Monday thru Saturday early afternoon to be able to enjoy it and not disrupt Sunday services. The grounds...More
