Beautiful, modern design with old-world charm. The neighborhood is very nice -- trendy, college, shops, and diverse. If you visit, check out the neighborhood, too.

I came here with my buddy's and we where shocked by the size of the church. The architecture is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. Be ready to climb a lot of stairs and take a lot of pictures. It was $5 gate fee and they have gift shop. There is a lot of history and it's all displayed. Your going to need more then 1h to explore and take in all the information. I recommend you go here with someone.

Our tour didn't allow time to tour the inside. The Oratory and the surrounding grounds are beautiful. The Oratory offers a great photo opportunity. Would have loved to climb the stairs.
