“Any basilica is worth a visit.”

Basilica of Saint Lawrence
Ranked #10 of 210 things to do in Asheville
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed May 24, 2018

With only 84 basilicas in the U.S, any one you see is worth a visit. The architecture of Saint Lawrence is sort of Bysantine but not exactly. The alter is quite beautiful especially the 4 side mosaics. If you are in Ashville, it's worth a visit.

Lovely to stop in for a few minutes and view this beautiful building. It is open to the public during the day and has a parking lot. Amazing architecture and stained glass windows.

Open for visitors, this working church has archtectural ties to work at the Biltmore. A good example of how people involved at Biltmore created and expanded lives for themselves and others within the community. Worth checking out.

I love to visit this church every chance I get. You feel the safe warm feeling like God is right there with you. I lave the history and the beauty of this wonderful old church.

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.
