Walking into this church is like stepping into a European cathedral. You forget where you are. The stained glass is amazing. It is well worth a trip across the river to view it.

You simply MUST take time to stop by. Pictures do not do this church justice. Don't forget to walk around through the gardens. Search for the gargoyles while you're here too. We almost missed them. Lovely, just lovely.

I have visited many Cathedrals in Europe and this rivals many of them! The stained glass windows and arches are fascinating. And don't forget to check out the gargoyles!! There was a guided tour on Sunday after the 10:00 Mass. Very informative and interesting!

Did not even know about this until checking on Trip Advisor. This cathedral is beautiful. Probably the most beautiful stained glass I have ever seen (and so much if it). We were delighted that someone was rehearsing on "one" of the 3 organs they have....More

Beautiful old catholic church with lots of history. Breathtaking stain glass windows and great architecture. Off the beaten path but worth the trip.

Some of the best things in life are free. They include a visit to the Basilica. You don't need to be devout Catholic to have respect for Jesus and admire how He is depicted magnificently on the walls and windows of the Basilica.
