The churches of yore are amazing architectural wonders. This beauty sits near the water and when you step inside, you just gape at the ornate architecture of every alcove. It reminds me or Notre Dame in Paris; on par with that type of historical period...More

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.

... This was a wonderful Basilica. I have been to other Basilica's before and this was different in its simplicity (compared to other basilicas). The artwork, the sculpture and the paintings are something else entirely.. a very nice surprise (for me) in the Buffalo area.

An absolute gorgeous church. Everything was brought over from Italy (except the onyx that was brought from Africa I believe) to give the feel of being in Europe. The architecture is stunning. People from around the world stop here to take in the sight and...More
