The interior of this Basilica is gorgeous. Don't miss it. They are replacing the cobble stones of the street in front of the basilica but they are moving fast and it will be finished soon.

This basilica has an ancient history and is an example of beautiful architecture, but in addition we attended one of the organ recitals offered, including a soprano singing Ave Maria and other selections. Recommend a visit here.

We visited the Bascilla inside and took the Sent some more pics to your Gmail Account. Good day here. Hope the girls have fun at recital tonight! It is midnight here! to the top for outstanding views. I think there was a small fee to go to top but definetely worth it.

Its in a very central location, so you'll see it quite a few times walking around the city. Which is ok because it looks nice.

This church looks beautiful from the outside but the interior is even better.The dome and alter are stunning with all the gold leaf.You can go up stairs or take the elevators to see it close up.We visited twice as the first time was Sunday mass and access to visitors is restricted, but it did give you a true feeling of the building.It is also lit up at night which really highlights its architecture.The surrounding area around the square has cafes so you can take a drink whilst taking in the view.
It is free to enter but most people give a donation
