This Basilica is the best one I have been too, well worth the visit and the entry price. The inside is just breathtaking, you can just sit and look at its beauty for a while.

Too many crowds even on a rainy day. Beware of the tour buses! Maybe we will check it out next time.

We had heard the AURA light show was a not-to-miss attraction. It was okay - a little like Pink Floyd goes to church. Took about 20 minutes. Sit about 3/4 of the way back for the best view.

This is not a question, just commentary...that which you seek additional insight without an actual question is pointless.
