I am always amazed at how hardworking, and talented people in past times were and they had to really sacrifice money, time and talent to get this built. BEAUTIFUL, TAKE YOUR TIME AND LOOK AT EVERY PART OF THE CEILING AND ALSO EVERY CORNER-many hidden messages. Beautiful art and meditation.
Regardless of your religious views or preferences, EVERYONE should be impressed by the shear beauty and detail of the sanctuary. Absolutely stunning. Trust me, if you are anywhere close to Dyersville (not a lot of other attractions around which I found) take the time to visit - a half hour will be more than enough time - and you will... 更多
This church is a hidden gem. Never would I expect to find such a stunning place of worship in a small town in Iowa. The stained glass windows were beautiful. The ornate wood work and paintings on the ceiling and throughout were breathtaking. The detail in the architecture is incredible. This is a must stop when visiting Dyersville!
None of us are baseball fans, so we skipped the fabled Field of Dreams and instead visited the Basilica. It was stunningly beautiful! The front door was open, so we got see the inside. Ornate woodwork, gold leaf, stained glass windows, unbelievable altar. Just wonderful. Probably best suited for us older folks;-). I don't think young children would find it... 更多

Located at the bottom of the main street it is the highlight of the town. Inside is beautiful. Unfortunately whilst I was there there were several local ladies inside who... 更多
This is beautiful from out side from miles away we saw it for years going to Dubuque and Wisconsin when we came back to visit friends and family from that town . Glad to see the inside in Sept 2012 at a local Iowa wedding we came back to see. The inside is so what can we say worth your... 更多
What a great building this is from the outside. We did not go inside but admired the beauty of this place from outside.
This church is absolutely stunning. You can currently go inside the side door anytime between 7 am and 8 pm, daily. (Check their website to confirm that times haven't changed!) It's very rare to find a church that is actually open outside of service or mass hours, and I was surprised to find that out. The architecture and details inside... 更多
While not a parishioner of St. Francis Xavier I have long been amazed with the beauty and size of the Basilca, especially given it was built 100 years ago in a relatively small Iowa community. Amazing accomplishment and worship center.
