Fodor's Review

Conceived when the capital was founded but only inaugurated in 1923, Our Lady of Lourdes Church was elevated to the category of basilica by Pope Pius XII in 1958. Its Gothic architecture has undergone some adaptations, but it's still a magnificent building, featuring a 400-pipe organ and various towers on the side facade that mix well with Belo's skyscrapers.
