“Early bird”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

We tried to get in mid morning and the place was packed ...went the next morning at 6:00 am..it was Sunday...we got to attend 2 mass and there was just a sprinkling of people. Go early and enjoy the place. You don't go there every day!!

“Emotional!”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

I have no words to describe such a sacred place. In spite of the confusion and lack of organization during the visits the History overcomes all.

“Lovely”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

This is a lovely site, such beautiful architecture and the priests are so friendly, they let me photograph them to my hearts content and were more than happy to discuss the site, defo recommend visiting the place if you ate Christian or not as it is beautiful and seeing the people pray is heartwarming

the architecture and artwork is amazing. The period is great to look at and if you are religious, you definitely want to visit and see the blood of Christ.
