Amazing place of worship. Had a wonderful experience connecting with God. One of best churches I have ever seen. The inside decor is off the chart. Though the priest spoken Italian (which I obviously don't understand) all through mass It was still awesome.
One of the most beautiful cathedrals I have seen! Really humble and modest in its grandiosity. Something to spend time in and embrace.
