The building interiors are breathtaking. The walkway from the parking lot is lined with flags of many countries, and there is a statue of Pope John's parents. Photos are allowed inside as long as you do not use flash. Several masses in various chapels were in progress while we were there. It did feel strange to walk past the picture of the Black Madonna as a priest was saying mass. We saw several enthusiastic groups of pilgrims, all looking happy and excited to be there. We ate at a very basic pilgrim's dining hall. The food was plain, but filling. There are several souvenir shops, as you would expect. Be careful to get your correct change if you buy anything!
