  • Very majestic and impressive basilica built in a venetian Gothic style!
  • An amazing church! I arrived at night while they held a celebration, so I had to leave. The security guy allowed me to take a picture inside the Basilica, but just for personal, so I'd better not share it here :P. I probably will visit it again.

  • Simply breathtaking.
