Mass filled up quickly in spite of the fact there are many seats and side chappels to sit within. People were standing along the back wall, and others were sitting on the stairs that lead to the individual side chappels.
The entire wall -- one leading to the black Madonna -- is filled with carvings of honorable people, animals, flora and fauna all conveying their own particular story.
Walking up this stairwell closest to the black Madonna allows an all too brief overview of the people chosen to be honored by many founders and craftsmen.
Astoundingly, everywhere you look is something for the eyes, mind and heart to take in . Notice the detail in lattice work on the ceilings.
This view allows a small glimpse into the varied paintings, stained glass, architectural detail and marble mosaic tiles that tease your eyes to walk slowly and take it all in before arriving at the room where the black Madonna is housed.
