Old World charm and cavernous feeling once you are in the middle and see the high painted ceilings and the intricate stained glass windows.

The Church outside and inside are so extraordinary architecture . From the stained glass, solid granite columns, older wooden pews, and the beautiful grottos. The wife and I enjoyed our time here. We spent a few hours here.
