  • Absolutely stunning!! Our stay was very brief as we caught it on our way passing through the area but will most definitely be back to take in all the history that it provides. We easily could have spent 2 hours here but only had 30 minutes to spare
  • Absolutely stunning architecture that you'd have to go to Europe to find a comparison. Incredibly beautiful and the audio tour gives a fascinating history of how this came to be. A very unique experience of beauty. This is for everyone, not just Catholics.
