Both me and my daughter enjoyed seeing the cathedral. It was beautiful. We got there around 9am. It was very peaceful. A must see.

The Cathedral overlooks the Town Square and is a very nice and fitting building in a dominant position. The Cathedral has some history and also has a small crypt which was open the day we were there. The crypt is the resting place of previous Diocesan Bishops and is a place for quiet prayer and peace.

As churches go this one is beautiful and worth walking inside to see. It was a nice stop to take in the architecture.

The renovation approximately a decade ago ensured that this space would remain beautiful for years to come. The stained glass windows are gorgeous and tell the story of the life of Mary. You can see in the ceiling details of shamrocks and fleur-de-lis representing the first priests and bishops of the Archdiocese from Ireland and France. All of the former... More

A must see while you're in Mobile. Absolutely stunning. Make sure to look for the spiral staircase that will lead you to the interesting tombs downstairs. Marble floors, incredible detail.

The inside of the Basilica is beautiful. We especially liked the Stations of the Cross, the sanctuary area, and the spiral staircase leading to the chapel tucked underneath the chruch.

Be sure to take your time. The architecture is breathtaking and the stained glass windows are amazing. Be sure to venture down the spiral stairs to where the Bishops are buried.

Quite a large and impressive church and bisicilla , the design off the square sets up the view for the whole downtown. My wife enjoyed the visit and a quick prayer!
