Came here with a choir tour. Who would have guessed that a tiny town somewhere in Iowa could have such a stunning cathedral. Acoustics were amazing, decor was jaw dropping. What a wonderful and unexpected treat!

Beautiful church. We loved the ceilings, the four "shields" in the main aisle flooring, and the intricate woodwork of the altars and ambo.

Majestic architecture is dominant in the town's skyline. The interior was as beautiful as any other Basilica that I have seen. A very moving spiritual experience. This is a hidden gem of northeast Iowa.
