Absolutely exquisite. The architecture and materials are all stunning. So many uses of marble and angels everywhere. Definitely go downstairs and spend time on the museum learning the story of Father Nelson Baker.

Worth a stop to see this beautiful basilica. During our visit the gift shop was closed and they were under renovations but they encourage visitors. A number of beautiful churches in the Buffalo and greater area but few have the architectural domes that this one...More

We saw a picture of the Basilica in a book about Buffalo and decided to drive there to visit and it was well worth the trip. Who needs to go to Italy when we have this amazing and beautiful location in Western New York. As...More
