If you are in town you should see this

I have been to so many magnificent churches this ranks better than average, but is not near the top of the list. If in town, there is no reason not to see it.

Love this church. Not as grandiose as I've seen but still saw a difference in architectural styles. Did not take a tour so may have missed some important facts. If you like churches I would recommend.

The stained glass depictions of Saint Augustine's life are phenomenal and reminiscent of any of the cathedrals in eastern France or western Germany. Mainly because the glass came from the same suppliers in 1909. It is clear why the cathedral was elevated to a minor basilica, it is beautiful both inside and out. A stop for those that appreciate religious... More

The architecture is beautiful. I love going there. If you have the opportunity to go to Mass there, it is special for sure.

Beautiful example of a Roman Catholic cathedral that is not related to the Spanish ancestry of St Augustine. The deacon was friendly and informative.

Well worth a step inside. Visitors are welcome to tour the church and walk around. It is on one of the squares that the tour train stops on. So not out of the way at all. There are speakers and historians walking around that are willing to chat about the different aspects of the church and artwork throughout.
