I am not Catholic, but this place reminds me of my Vatican experience. Unique, and centrally located on Lindell street, it is worth a visit. Go to Mass if you can, the place is beautiful.

Rivals any church we visited in Europe - absolutely took my breath away. Largest collection of mosaic art in the US.

Doesn't matter if you are Catholic or not - this is a free place to go to admire beautiful work - tiles, paintings, etc.

A must see when visiting STL. The architecture is magnificent.
Parking is a bit crowded so park at the back of the church.

Took 50 years to build, including the handwork in the artistry and architecture. As beautiful as any you will see in the world. A must see.
