  • Wow! A masterpiece of architecture. You ain’t seen nothing yet until you go in the building. Very magnificent. The ornaments are truly a work of art. My partner and I had a very nice time and enjoyed our visit there. We will be back to this place again. Yes. We will!
  • An architectural icon of Victoria. Be sure to come out in the day to walk the grounds, and again at night to see the lights. The lights are year round, but there are additions for the holidays. It's also a helpful landmark when walking around town to keep your bearings.
