We finally made it out to the Basilica. I dragged my husband there on the metro and we got thoroughly drenched between the Basilica and the metro, but it was still a great trip. I was impressed.
You'll see the old Basilica below which was closed for about 25 years at the end of the last century. It still leans to the front corner and there's a noticeable incline inside the church, and cracks in the ceiling too.
There are many buildings on the site. We were there in the evening when most we closed, but the main ones were still open.
