From the architecture of the building to the stained glass windows and the mosaics, it was breath taking, awesome. A nice booklet is available explaining the construction and building highlights. A worthwhile visit.

Breathtaking classic Gothic architecture, complete with flying buttresses! I loved this church. It is really an amazing structure to see, so much beautiful carved wood and stone with lovely stained glass windows. So glad we stopped at this!
