  • Even though not religious, I find this a very calming and peaceful place to visit. I enjoyed so much I actually sat through a half hour Mass during my stay. Some beautiful ornate side chapels and impressive main Altar. Although free to visit, if you've enjoyed the experience, I think it's only fair to give a donation.
  • A fantastic building. The architecture is wonderful and obviously the spiritual reason behind the building brings joy and fulfillment to many. I, however always think that MONEY is the root to all evil. And this Church really does like you to give it money. It wants your money. No, it really wants your money, it lusts after your hard earned cash.
