Any visit to the area would be incomplete without exploring this cathedral. Close to Washington university and the large park, the three could be combined for a nice itenerary.

Don't miss it! It's a must see in a beautiful area. The tour guide offered some very interesting facts and was entertaining. A good time to go on weekdays is between 9:00 AM and noon in between masses. Quite a breath taking masterpiece.

Just ti see the beautiful ceilings is worth the trip in itself. Parking is a bit difficult to find, so if you can park on a metered street, then your lucky. Or else, you'd have to park some ways at a parking garage.
