  • Nice architecture, so calm it's so beautiful inside. Many to explore around.
  • The Basilica is both beautiful inside and outside. Francisco, Jacinta and Lucia are buried inside
  • An excellent architecture design should have always been considered connecting nature. I have to admit the overall ambient structures seems to echo one another, and the nature - sky give them a dramatic strike. That's why the believers getting fanatic!
