Breathtaking architecture. Good luck getting there. All I'm gonna say. Have fun. St. Louis has to be proud. Perhaps the folks inside had their pants pulled up, but assuredly no one in the curtilage did.

I never tire of going to cathedral...it houses the worlds largest mosaic art collection. A great place to meditate and pray or just take in the incredible architecture. The history is quite fascinating whether you are religious or not.

Go see when Mass is not occurring. Take the tour it’s worth the history. You don’t need to be Catholic or even Christen to appreciate the beauty. Mosaics are beautiful.

One of my favorite cathedrals. The mosaic ceilings must be seen in person to truly appreciate. It’s stunningly beautiful.

One of the most interesting and beautiful places I have visited. Unbelievable mosaic work. I just wish I had a full day to spend to look at all there was to see and admire. Don’t miss it!
