This struc­ture is loved for its unique loca­tion right next to the waters of the riv­er, as well as its unique archi­tec­tur­al style with many giant tow­ers and domes that mag­i­cal­ly dom­i­nate the sky­line. They stretch high into the sky, and are like mag­nif­i­cent bea­cons of his­to­ry, pos­sess­ing an impres­sive his­tor­i­cal her­itage. Even a sim­ple trip around the facades of the basil­i­ca is enough to enjoy the fairy tale col­ors and shapes of this baroque archi­tec­tur­al mas­ter­piece.
