There is no paint inside the church - everything you are looking at is a mosaic!!! Some of the mosaics and the rose window in the front were made by Tiffany. I found this cathedral even more beautiful than St. Paul's!!

This Basilica's golden murals are amazing. Take the time for a guided tour and hear about its history.
