  • The pink marble on the outside is cool and different, but entrance fee is too high and not worth it
  • Humiliating! They were very rude and didnt consider that a person using a walker had a disability. They made us pay for a personal care assitant! Embarrassing for a catholic institution! We decided to not even go inside. Questo non è rispetto!
