This was a rare find, we stumbled upon. Fairly plain on the outside, the inside was incredible. Go in and enjoy the art and stained glass. Stop and see the kneeler that Pope John Paul II used when he made this a minor Basilica.

It feels like an historic cathedral, but Phoenix isn't old enough for it to have that kind of history. It is a peaceful refuge in what is a particularly secular city compared with San Francisco or Santa Fe for example. Slip in from the bustle...More

The gardens next to the basilica also offer a place of tranquility in downtown Phoenix. Of course, the basilica, itself, is also worth seeing. ;) The gift shop is very small--maybe 150 square feet; but it has a wide selection of religiously-oriented merchandise.

A Beautiful Basilica right in the middle of Phoenix. Have actually gone there since I was a little kid. It is very old and ornate. Even if you are not Catholic or religious it is a place to see.

We were looking for parking for Heritage Square when we found St. Mary's. Decided to go in and visit, then realized mass was about to begin (Noon weekday mass). The service was very nice and the church is beautiful, a must see for catholic families.

I loved St Mary's Basilica. The community is very welcoming and the Basilica is very beautiful. History is very interesting and free parking to be at the Basilica. It is moving to realize a Saint visited .

Phoenix hasn't much to offer in tourist terms, and it was only our sleep break on the way to Grand Canyon. While driving through downtown, we spotted this cute Catholic Church. Stopped by and payed a visit. First, it's a great photo op with palms...More
