We were wowed by the current excellent condition of the building and it's history. The story of where the beautiful windows were damaged in a storm and had to be dismantled pane by pane and shipped back to Europe for repair was amazing.

I didn't find out until later that we could have walked down the stairs in the cathedral so we kinda missed out on some of the Beauty of this place. I saw them as we walked by.. but we just didn't want to step out of bounds. When in a church it is important to be respectful at all times.... More

Beautiful cathedral! A must visit when traveling in Mobile, Al. Even if you are not Catholic you can appreciate the architecture and beauty of this church. It is said that a city that has a cathedral will never have a direct hit from a major hurricane. I don't know if this is true since we have had several but none... More

The Cathedral is gorgeous. The paintings are beautiful as is the tiling and statues. The coolest part for the kids was going down to the burial rooms under the Catheral. A pretty quick stop but worth it.

Beautiful cathedral, wonderfully decorated ceiling, traditional stained glass windows, quiet, peaceful. Full of WOW if you happen to catch it with the lights on inside. Also a wonderful backdrop to exterior photos too. We always take international visitors. Iron fence and gates date from the 1850's. We worth a few minutes of your day.

Recently using TA as a guide while passing through town, we decided to stop at old Mobile for lunch at highly TA rated Mediterrean Sandwich Co. After our lunch we strolled to a nearby park and took in the local Cathedral. The building has the great distinction of having the good fortune of being very well maintained and it really... More

The Cathedral is a beautiful building that has a long and interesting history. To me it is also the most spiritual place in Mobile. It's worth a visit.
