We visited after enjoying a ride on the funicular. The Basilica is so beautiful. The stained glass windows are spectacular. The Ceri are kept here. This is a very special place.

It's about 40 minutes to hike up. Or you can take the funicular, which was not working on the day i went. The view is beautiful and the walk was really good exercise. The locals do it for the exercise. It's a very peaceful church.
