Reviewed May 16, 2018

If you're in Asheville make time to visit the Basilica. Stained glass on both sides of the church are beautiful and the paintings behind and near the alter were done by the same artist who painted the ceiling in the library of the Biltmore estate. nice place to reflect while you're in Asheville.

Make sure to stop by this Basilica. Very well preserved. Quiet and peaceful. Walk around, observe, pray.

Attended mass here last week, and felt very welcomed into this gorgeous structure. Asheville is fortunate to have such a lovely church in a relatively small city.

This is a church I find very stunning. I try and go to Mass with each visit to Asheville. Walking inside will take your breath away. I enjoyed the tour after Mass as well as a short walk to restaurants and shopping. If you are a photographer, you will love this Basilica.
