The exterior of this Basilica is bare & quite misleading, as when you enter it is vast and impressive. Two rows of enormous columns divide the interior into 3 aisles. There are 9 enclosed Chapels down one side. Very tranquil place to visit.

Wonder at the painters of this peaceful church. Be sure to check out the perspective in the roof over the altar.
