The title of this review says it all. It’s insanely gorgeous and brought me to tears when I walked in. It’s worth a visit if you appreciate architectural beauty. You don’t have to be Catholic to be awed here.

It is a simple and elegant basilica. Quiet place to meditate or pray. It is close to the Arch, the Dred Scott Courthouse and Mississippi. You can walk to all of these sites without walking too far of a distance.
