  • I was leaving town when i get to visit the Basilica very briefly. Unfortunately, i couldn't take the Guided Tour because of the time limitations, i had to go to the airport. However, It looked beautiful in the inside. I will definitely come back for the tour or if i have time for the mass which is daily at 8:30 am and 10 am but i highly recommend to check with them first. This is a Catholic Basilica 🙏💗
  • Amazing space. And works by famous artists. The tour is extensive - taking you places that would have been off-limits before (like the sacristy) I’ve gone twice. Once for the self-guided walking tour and once to spend time just in the main church / nave with all the art
