“Nice photo op and place to stop for a prayer”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

Nice photo from down the street. Great quiet peaceful place to catch Mass or say a prayer and contemplate St. Francis' humble life.

“Beautiful restoration”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

The interior of this lovely cathedral was recently restored. On a previous visit I saw people hand painting some of the ornate wall decorations. This cathedral has a long and interesting history which is well documented within the walls. Well worth a visit.

“What a beautiful cathedral”
Reviewed 24 March 2012 via mobile

The Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi is a real gem to see. If I remember rightly the lady mentioned that it was almost 200 years old, yet it has such a bright interior. The baptismal fond is beautiful. The chapel of La Conquistadora which was rebuilt in 1714 is also beautiful. Worth a visit.
