This is a beautiful Basillica. With 41.5 million tiles there is something to see in every corner. The 5 pm Sunday Mass was beautiful with a nice homily and pipe organ music.

Loved the church and museum in basement about the mosaics is worth visiting. I made a last minute decision about going before heading back home to ATL and the place is simply impressive.
