We have been to the Basilica numerous times and our son was married there. It is a smaller replica of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. The stained glass in this Basilica is incredible. It is a must see place when visiting greater Cincinnati.

It was a funeral there but it is ABSOLUTELY HEAVENLY. If you appreciate beautiful churches regardless of the denomination you will love this one. It's worth a trip just to see how magnificent it is.

they are open 10am to 4pm to the public. Unfortunately, there was going to be a funeral in the building we were there but still were able to look around. The stained glass is amazing.

We've taken the tour, listened to concerts and still find it quite a place of wonder. It is, to be sure, an inspirational place to see. The stained glass windows are beautiful.
