Located next to Dauphine street, it's worth to walk in and enjoy the cool silent space. The building is well maintained and has the European feel to it that makes it really a nice Cathedral.

This Cathedral is well known for its stained glass windows and beautiful ceiling. We were there on a Tuesday morning in March and fortunately the building was open. We had time to admire the architecture and sit peacefully away from a hectic world. Visit for both the art/architecture and the peace.

My son and I were killing time, so we decided to visit. This is perhaps the most beautiful place I've ever seen. When you enter, you really feel that this is a reverent place.

We were advised not to miss this gem by a young lady who served us at Mama's down the street. If this Catholic Cathedral made such an impression on a 20-something non-Catholic, we felt it worth our time to visit. She was right-it is stunning. The Church is about to undergo a 2 year stained glass window restoration which will... More

Very good experience. Allow about a half hour. We were able to park on the street next to the Catherderal. So bring some change for the parking meter. The stained glass windows were spectacular. This was a truly moving experience.

Mobile is blessed to have such a beautiful Cathedral in our city. The interior is magnificent. I have attended choral concerts here and the sound acoustics are incredible. Right downtown near good restaurants and parks with easy parking on the street.

The cathedral is beautiful inside. I especially loved the ceiling design with alternating shamrocks and fleur-de-lis. Make sure you go down into the crypt - very interesting.

This historic church is beautiful and located right on Dauphin Street in downtown Mobile. I liked the part about one of the Bishops being buried right at the doorway.
