Covington is a very cute small town just across Cinci on the Kentucky side of Ohio river. It has a charm of small European towns, what we concluded being there for dinner in one of many restaurants and bars. Next morning we visited this Cathedral....More

The Basilica is a hidden gem in Cincinnati. Whenever friends come to visit it is a must visit site. Mass is lovely, the atmosphere is friendly. The stained glass windows are grand. I love it.

It's quite startling to discover a European-style cathedral in an unassuming spot in Covington, Kentucky. The Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption can't compete with places like the Cathedral of Saint Louis in Saint Louis, or the National Cathedral in Washington. But its definitely a place...More

One does not anticipate finding a one-third scale replica of Notre Dame in downtown Covington KY, but there it is. The self-guided tour is well worth the time and effort. The Basilica also has the largest stained glass window in the world.

This was our second visit. It was even more beautiful this time. The lights were turned on inside the cathedral which allowed for the beauty of the ceiling to be on display. The stained glass is stunning. We spent nearly an hour just gazing at...More

Once inside the Cathedral, you'll wonder at what is holding up the ceiling, there are so many stained glass windows. It is a beautiful treasure, and has recently been renovated. The windows will dazzle.
