Most historic churches can advertise wonderful pieces of art. This basilica contains walls of detailed stained glass, some of the largest in the world. Of an entirely different medium, large mosaics depict the story of Christ's passion in excruciating detail. It all leaves one speechless....More

I attended a friends wedding here. It was enchanting, romantic, and gorgeous! Beautiful architecture. We stayed at a hotel in Cincinnati, and it was a short drive across the bridge.

I love this Cathedral--what a special place to get married in. It has tremendous character and is stunning inside. A must to see when visiting the Covington area.

Walking into this church is like stepping into a European cathedral. You forget where you are. The stained glass is amazing. It is well worth a trip across the river to view it.

You simply MUST take time to stop by. Pictures do not do this church justice. Don't forget to walk around through the gardens. Search for the gargoyles while you're here too. We almost missed them. Lovely, just lovely.

I have visited many Cathedrals in Europe and this rivals many of them! The stained glass windows and arches are fascinating. And don't forget to check out the gargoyles!! There was a guided tour on Sunday after the 10:00 Mass. Very informative and interesting!

The first time, we just stumbled on this Basilica by accident. It was so beautiful that I brought my daughter to visit this time. I understand it has the world's largest story mural in stained glass, imported from Germany (if I remember right). Walk around...More

Beautiful old catholic church with lots of history. Breathtaking stain glass windows and great architecture. Off the beaten path but worth the trip.
