one of the best architectural churches around. it has so much to see it can take hours if you choose. there are so many statues and paintings with picturesque views in every direction. a must see especially if you are religious.

This basilica is reminisant of the great churches of Europe. A must visit. A good tim to visit is Easter or Christmas when the church is beautifully decorated.

Absolutely exquisite. The architecture and materials are all stunning. So many uses of marble and angels everywhere. Definitely go downstairs and spend time on the museum learning the story of Father Nelson Baker.

Beautiful craftsmanship and truly awe inspiring. Even for the non religious, it is a wonderful place just to regroup and calm yourself. For the religious it will fill you with greater faith. Very large so time is determined by what interests you. The sculptures and...More
