If I tried to differentiate this Basilica from Iglesia de la Compania (near the university) or the famous temple in Valenciana, I would say this one is the Basilica of multiple large chandeliers and a very old sculpture of a virgin. Chandeliers are hanging everywhere...More

We attended a weeding in this church so had the opportunity to enjoy every detail. It is really worth to visit and very close to the main square.
