I've lived in Cincinnati for 25+ years and had never been to this landmark. How I had failed to see it before is now an inexcusable mistake. What a beautiful house of worship! Faux gothic, this structure made to appear built hundreds of years ago...More

This cathedral is especially beautiful on a sunny day. The stained glass windows are spectacular. The stations of the cross are made of imported mosaics. Tours are available. It almost has the feel of a cathedral in Europe, complete with flying buttresses.

The Cathedral Basilica has beautiful stained glass and is a replica of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris France. They do have tours which I'd highly recommend to learn all the little details that go into making the Cathedral what it is.
