I stopped here with some family members to show them the beauty of this place. It was just before closing and was virtually deserted! That made it VERY peaceful! We wandered around soaking in the artistic beauty! It is AMAZING! I highly recommend stopping here...More

This basilica is beautiful, well spoken and the musicians the best. The mass experience is made even more profound when you think that this is not a parish church. This beautiful experience was created by donations from pilgrims - travelers to Orlando that have faith!
