We much appreciated the way Mass was celebrated at this beautiful cathedral. The priest was inspirational, the music was well done, and the congregation was engaged. At least 10 babies were baptized during the mass which was beautifully choreographed and true to the scriptures. Thank...More

A beautiful basilica with a very explicit crucifix; well worth visiting. Pictures don't quite give it justice.

Lots of stained windows and tiles. The altar was impressive with paintings of different saints. There is a small gift store.

My husband and I felt like we were back in Europe. Beautiful stained glass. A very spiritual place. The adjacent park is lovely too. On Sunday, a wonderful guitarist playing Spanish classical delighted us.

Beautiful old church with lovely stained glass windows, a large number of pews. Well presented throughout with an alcove of religious books. Peaceful area for reflection and prayer.

We stopped in for about 30 minutes and wished we had more time to spend inside. It really is lovely and inspiring. Only exception was a woman sitting in a pew talking on her cell phone. We thought that was rude.
