I have been to Italy, visited many of the beautiful churches and basilicas there. This place takes a back seat to none of them! A truly amazing building that has to be seen to be believed. A Lackawanna miracle.

Haven’t been here in our 30 years! I remember the wonderful Christmas Midnight masses. The building itself is architecturally amazing inside and outside. Truly a national treasure. We arrived after the museum and gift shop downstairs closed at 4pm. Be respectful when you enter.

This basilica is reminisant of the great churches of Europe. A must visit. A good tim to visit is Easter or Christmas when the church is beautifully decorated.
