Even if this event last only between 15-20 minutes, it is a must to see ! When you enter the basilica, you are invited to wlak around and see lots of images growing to life with lights and sounds, everything is amazing all around the basilica. Then a voice announce the start of Aura and then, watch out, when you can believe that the roof is suddenly a dome of glass and you can see all seasons passing under your eyes, flood, rebirth of earth, when you se golden rhinestone falling all over you, you are amazed. This sound and lights event has to be seen by all of you, it is breath taking ! The man behind it is creative, artistic, should I say; a Genius ! Good to know: you are allowed to take pictures inside the basilica before and after AURA show, for copyright reasons you are NOT allowed to take pictures or film the event. My pictures are before and after AURA

So moving and stunning - like nothing I've seen before. Very impressive, could have a been a bit longer but we feel it was worth the money.

The best light show I've seen in my life, I don't have words necessary to describe how spectacular this show is, it's amazing what an imposing cathedral and a perfect combination of lights that transport you to the stages they represent. I recommend it as many times as necessary. Buying tickets in advance will always be necessary.

I wasn’t sure what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised! What creativity, what imagination and what a beautiful backdrop. Such a beautiful Basilica and the light show highlighted it’s magnificence. Recommend sitting near the back half of the church.

I definitely thought it was worth the money, even though as others have pointed out, it should really be billed as a half hour experience, not 45 minutes, and only 15 of those minutes are part of the light show, whereas the rest of the time is spent viewing artwork that has been "illuminated" throughout the church. Nonetheless, the light show is excellent, and I thought it was just the right length. Agree that you should sit closer to the back for optimal viewing. If you don't feel that you have enough time to view the illuminated art, you will have more time after the light show is over.
