Both the grounds and the inside of this Roman Catholic Church were beautiful. Took lots of pictures and really enjoyed the time I spend. Has a gift shop but it wasn’t open when I was there. Open weekend 1-5.

St. Mary's Basilica is located in Downtown Phoenix. This beautiful Mission Revival-Spanish Colonial Revival structure is listed on the National Register of Historical Places. Great place to avoid the Arizona sun and enjoy the beauty of this basilica. Jolly Chriss.

To be able to visit one of the oldest Catholic churches in Phoenix sure is a religious experience. Beautify architecture and great landscaping.
