This is next to the Archway park and I thought I would walk over and get a quick look. The oldest building in St. Louis is the Cathedral. It’s quite beautiful inside. If you have time take a look.

An amazing cathedral both outside and inside. Even better if enjoyed on Sunday mass. Very spiritual experience.

A gorgeous Church with a magnificent Mosaic collection. The side altars are as interesting as the main sanctuary.

I've seen amazingly beautiful cathedrals all across Europe, but the Basilica in St. Louis can give them all a run for their money. What it lacks in age it makes up for in gorgeous design. It's unexpected, but truly awe-inspiring. I highly recommend a stop...More

This is the most amazing piece of architecture in Saint Louis. (Big words, considering the Gateway to the West is downtown). The Cathedral Basilica is equal to any of the beautiful architectural masterpieces in Europe.

I am not usually a fan of tile-work. I'm definitely not a fan of King Midas vomiting gold everywhere either. However, this basilica has both, and my God... it's a glimpse of Heaven. I took my agnostic boyfriend here and he remarked "How can you...More
