Overwhelming, the mosaics are very splendid,some done by Tiffany, they also show the history of early St Louis. This is a very holy place. There are also tours and a nice gift shope, pulse a mosaic museum in the lower church.

Absolutely gorgeous cathedral! I've never seen more beautiful mosaics. Very peaceful inside. They offer tours but we just walked around on our own.

Visited with teens, they enjoyed the mosaics in the church but the museum in the basement is more for adults actually interested in how the mosaic process works.

Glorious Bible stories and St. Louis founding history told in glass mosaic by international artists. Two Tiffany rose Windows, and an entire chapel dedicated to Mary, Jesus's mother created by Tiffany. Gifted parish choir and a great Kilgin organ. The church has evening concert series...More

Even if you're not a Catholic (which I am) your next trip to St. Louis MUST include this majestic site. The Cathedral is a shine to religious belief, certainly, and it is sacred ground. But, the Cathedral Basilica is a living, breathing work of art...More
