The cathedral is well worth a visit. It is easy to find because of the very large pillars in front. The architecture and stained glass windows are beautiful. Feels like you are in Europe!!

This cathedral is a lovely, quiet place to get some time for contemplation and prayer. Just walking around both the interior and the exterior touches your soul.

We like to visit catholic cathedrals when we can because they are so impressive and this one was great. It is also a basilica. I got some chuckles when I posted mobile cathedral on Facebook; they wanted to know if it was on wheels!

This church is amazing. Stain glass windows are gorgeous. Be sure to look up at the ceiling and go down the spiral staircase. Well worth the visit!

One of the loveliest Catholic churches this side of the Atlantic, with elements of an ancient Roman basilica (barrel vaults, tripartite division). The stained glass, made in Germany, is exquisite. Well worth a visit (especially on hot, muggy days, as the space is air conditioned...More

Loved the Church inside and out. Good information on the stained glass windows that are being restored. Didn't get to stay long as they had a wedding party showing up. Not the fanciest Catholic Church I have seen but very nice.

Went to visit the church and decided to go to mass there the next day. The church is beautiful. If you are looking for mass go here as it is nice to see how the old churches were built.
