Oh...what an interior it is!
Louis: Marbelous, I thought, Ray.
Oh it's beautiful!
Louis: It is, I agree, Elizabeth.
Fabulous, Louis. You know how in awe I am of these basilicas.
Louis: Thank you, Ginnie. I think it is marbelous.

They sure take their religion seriously hereabouts Louis!
Louis: They were also fabulously rich, Chris.

The general colour scheme seems very pleasing Louis.
Louis: Done in very good taste and it helps that they included good natural light in their design.
Thanks for taking us inside Louis, it is beautiful.
Louis: It is my pleasure, Brian and I agree about the beauty. Lisbon has so many old buildings of religious nature, that I decided to only do the interior of two of them, in the three days I was there. This one and the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos.
This is more than a bit magnificent Louis
Louis: I agree, Bill.

Wow, this is absolute fabulous, I know for sure I will have a cracked neck after visiting this church.
Louis: Heh, if you would sit down on a bench, you can lean back without danger to the neck smile
very nicely framed, Louis. it is fairly well illuminated.
Louis: Thank you Ayush. I believe the architects did a great design.

The magnificence is quite overwhelming, Louis, even in a photo
Louis: This is quite a place and I thought that everything was done in good taste, without over-cluttering (new word smile).
