Always look for catherdarals or church's when travelling. Some are really nice while others are simple This place was not overly large but very beautiful in side for sure. Really glad we took a look

Have been attending mass with a friend. For many years I viewed this beautiful cathedral from the outside but I never imagined the beauty that was held inside. Magnificant. The mass is very welcoming to all.

The architecture is magnificent and while its facade is rather unremarkable, the interior is majestic. It is a must see a few steps away from the Capitol Building, which offers tours. A must see.

When you walk inside the cathedral you will say WOW. You could sit there all day and just be in amazement of the structure.

Harrisburg is a beautiful city downtown. The cathedral is a close walk to the Capitol building, some other nice churches, and a vibrant restaurant scene.
