My friends and I attended a morning mass here and was blessed to get a tour of the basilica given by the rector after the mass. We were treated with historic information about the church with the "private tour" of the basilica. The priest was very warm and accommodating!

We attended a Christmas Concert, but received a trip back to Europe. The Church is a special place for all to sit and reflect about the mixture of art and faith. Pay close attention to the side chapels.

Unbelievable architecture!! Don't miss it if you enjoy historic buildings! Mass was beautiful but they also offer tours.

During its heyday, this church was really popular, which is why it was elevated to basilica status. Today, it seems like it is less well known and visited. The artwork is beautiful: the Carrara marble altar, the murals, the Volto Santo replica, the tilework on the ceiling, and the balconies near the apse. Despite being in a lower income neighborhood, I really don't think should discourage visitors. The parish community was very welcoming on Sunday morning and were probably some of the nicest people I met in the city.
