The artistry tile work on the ceilings and walls was very beautiful and overall the experience of being there was amazing. My 15 yr old son also was overcome by the presence of this majestic cathedral.

This Basilica is a masterpiece of mosaic work. It is covered inside with mosaics. Creation of these mosaics began in 1912. Some artists spent their entire lives creating these works. Stained glass is by Tiffany. The mosaics are made of 41.5 million bits of glass...More

This is a must see in this area. The beautiful work of the millions of pieces of mosaics is breathtaking. Such painstaking work over many years created a masterpiece. The wood pews are gorgeous. The altar area is stunning.

Breathtaking mosaic art inside. Impossible to even imagine the back breaking work involved. We were treated to a guided tour through the copy of The Saint John's Bible by two very helpful and positive docents. The building and the bible are two very special works...More

Stunning on the inside. Really special. Unique... but it is a working church and they are really not very nice to tourist when there is mass. You kind of get the "you are not welcome here" Absolute worth the visit.. but avoid going during Mass......More

Very beautiful church that is definitely worth a peek. A volunteer was on his way out as we were heading in but he was kind enough to give us the history of the church before he left.

I recommend taking the guided tour, the cathedral is massive and beutiful. The windows are amazing. IT's a little off the beat and path but worth a visit.

There are a couple of free parking lots behind the Cathedral. You just need to drive around the block to get behind it. No metered street parking in this area of the city. Just don't go at Mass time or they will be... More
