Of course I couldn’t go to the Brookland area without checking out the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. It is located at 400 Michigan Avenue, NE. It most definitely is impressive. There are tons of mosaics that are pretty fresh.

Truth be told I was more blown away by the Franciscan Monastery. Nevertheless it’s most definitely worth a visit. A couple more photos after the jump.
