Unfortunately we were unable to see the inside of the Cathedral due to time constraints......HOWEVER.....it is quite beautiful on the outside......they do not build them like this anymore !!

The exterior and interior are both well worth a visit. The interior was beautiful and filled with exquisite stained glass windows. The interior decor was amazing with columns and light fixtures.

This Historical Chapel is amazing. Even if you are not Catholic, you can appreciate the craftsmanship of the construction. The wood work is amazing and the sculptures are beautiful. Defiantly a place to visit whether you live here or just visiting.

This is a beautiful Cathedral. It's not ornate and gaudy like some cathedrals I have visited. It has a simplicity and reverence about it. The murals and stained glass are really amazing. It's worth taking a hour to visit and pray, whether or not you...More

Visited this church in early September. I accidentally gatecrashed a wedding actually :-/ It's a historic monument and is primarily frequented by the Latin American populace.

We were so thrilled to find this cathedral open for us to visit during the week, mid afternoon. If you love old churches, stained glass and beautiful architecture, you'll be delighted!

We stopped by mid-day and parked in the lot behind the church. Very large and pretty stained glass windows. I was disappointed when I tried to light a votive candle. Not candles lite in the church and the lighters did not work.

We stopped here on the Trolley tour. Breaking church with beautiful stained glass windows. It was a short visit, but would like to go back and attend a mass.

On Sundays at 3pm they have a Mass in Spanish. They have bathrooms downstairs in case you have an emergency. The Cathedral is beautiful inside and outside; you have to see it. And if you're Catholic, you'll love the Mass.
