I enjoyed my tour of the cathedral. Our guide was knowledgeable, and the cathedral is beautiful. It doesn't have the history of European cathedrals, but it is beautiful. Helen Keller is buried there.

Another splendid cathedral worth visiting. Beautiful church inside. Worth walking around and viewing all of the interesting gargoyles outside. A great deal of architectural detail to enjoy. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the church.

This place is so beautiful. The stained glass, the exterior carvings depicting native people of North America (who knew)- literally all of it.

Beautiful cathedral. It is enormous. If you go to the service you don't need to pay to visit it. There is also a cafe inside with delicious food. Cathedral is still under renovations due to the earthquake that hit DC a few years ago.

I believe this is the largest cathedral on the east coast with lots of detail. it is also the final resting place for our 28th president, Woodrow Wilson who remains the only president buried in DC.
