This is one of the prettiest churches in the Midwest. If you go here don’t forget to look around at all the little smaller chapels within the church itself.

We visited the cathedral on our visit to StL. We visited right after noon mass on a Sunday and we were lucky enough to be there just in time for a tour! The tour was long- an hour and a half, but very informative. The...More

Building very well maintained, speaks its history by itself. Beautiful inside as the outside. Very easy to find.

The collection of mosaics and the marble were beautiful. Quite possibly the most beautiful building I have been visited.

Photos do not do justice to the beauty of this incredible church. You really have to see it in person to appreciate its stunning grandeur. If the stunning mosaics and monumental architecture are not enough for you, attend mass here (even if you are not...More

This was an interesting visit. We didn't have a lot of time due to mass starting, however in our time there it was impressive, if a little overbearing. I appreciate the art and think it was beautiful, but there was almost too much.

We've traveled to many places, especially Europe and the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis is one of the most inspiring and beautiful churches in the world. I understand there is not a drop of paint in the entire structure rather every part of the basilica...More

There were 4 adults- we enjoyed it, but we felt like the tour guide was taking too much time. We moved on on our own. It’s definitely beautiful but it sure is a lot of money tied up in brick and mortar.

This cathedral is beautiful on the inside. Spacious. The elaborate paintings and mosaic (some say the largest in the world) is breathtaking! A truly spiritual and experience to see this and attend a service!

At night it would be more formal than a day concert. If a man I would wear nice slacks and a dress shirt possibly with or without a jacket. A lady could wear a skirt to the knee or a pants suit but, covered shoulders or with... More

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
