Owner description: A gothic cathedral that has a design similar to Notre Dame in Paris.
Reviewed 14 August 2017

This was our second visit. It was even more beautiful this time. The lights were turned on inside the cathedral which allowed for the beauty of the ceiling to be on display. The stained glass is stunning. We spent nearly an hour just gazing at everything. Visit the cathedral if you are within an hour of it as it will leave lasting memories. Make sure you check their website for visiting hours. Beautiful and humbling!

Once inside the Cathedral, you'll wonder at what is holding up the ceiling, there are so many stained glass windows. It is a beautiful treasure, and has recently been renovated. The windows will dazzle.

This beautiful cathedral is well worth taking the time to visit. It is one of the most impressive cathedrals I've visited in the U.S. The stained glass and mosaics are exquisite. There was a staff member available to answer questions and to point out particularly interesting parts of the cathedral. The exterior of the building, especially the gargoyles, is lovely as well.

This structure is beautiful. I was sad because we didn't get to fully explore the building. We got there right when mass was starting sow we had to sit. My children experienced mass for the first time here. The windows are detailed and full of color.

I've been holding off my review because I was trying to find the words to describe the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption. In reading all of the other reviews, there are many descriptive words but none truly fit because there are no words, only your inner feelings. You must experience it.
