The grotto church at street level was nice to look around, and free to take photos. The main cathedral above has no photography signs, and the security guard there strictly enforced this when we were there. Don't quite know why they need to prohibit photos,...More

One can come here anytime of the day (specially in the evening before 5pm). It is on the main road and has parking area as well. Come and sit here to avoid chaos in the city

No matter what religion you follow or not, this place will bring peace to your mind. The interior of the church is simply wonderful. Very nice place to be at if you wanna spend some time in peace while not doing much.
