Many times I have visited this majestic Cathedral. And I am not exaggerating to say every time I walk in the main doors it takes my breath away more than any church I've ever been in in my life.

The largest mosaic church in the world. Completed in less time as well. Be sure to include the downstairs.

The architecture is marvellous. This sight is a must see attraction when you are in St. Louis. The wall paintings inside were amazing. Moreover we were lucky enough to watch the Sunday mass going on.

This basilica certainly brought some of its inspiration from the beautiful architecture of Europe. It certainly highlights the skyline of St. Louis. An American treasure. The inside of these walls are as stunning as the outside.

There are a couple of free parking lots behind the Cathedral. You just need to drive around the block to get behind it. No metered street parking in this area of the city. Just don't go at Mass time or they will be... More
