Beautiful church in the outside. Worth the visit once. Big and majestic inside and very quiet and peaceful. It's right in the middle of the city. Wished there was descriptions in English.

Enjoyed a christmas concert in this basilika and the acoustics were fantastic. Especially enjoyed the organ music. Took more time afer the concert to view the circular, coloured glass window. Will definitely return.
