The one thing we did notice was that no one else was taking a moment to admire them. Most went straight to the Basilica or souvenir shop. The tour bus guides did not either. It was an interesting thing to note.
We stepped into the Basilica and were blown away by it's beauty. The colors, murals, and ceiling were all tremendously beautiful. Though I follow a spiritual path versus religious I still had to nod my head at the amazing work that went into it.
When leaving we decided to take a stroll past the water fountain and down the street that was parallel. When doing so we came across the Museum of the Edison Phonograph and insane architecture. We could imagine the first settlers/pilgrims wandering down the small street and climbing the spiral staircases. That is what dumbfounded us....the murals were our guide in connecting to that past. Still...it was a wonderful couple of hours and we are glad we did it.
