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.

I think this is the most beautiful made made structure I have ever been in. It's massive, and the ceiling was so high I got dizzy when I looked up. I would have loved to able to attend service there.

This church is as beautiful as any we have seen in Europe. The acoustics are wonderful and it is easily accessed from the interstate.

Easy parking on the street out front. This basilica is worth the visit. A beautiful, historic church on a lovely square.

Gorgeous cathedral. The stained glass was beautiful. The alter was breathtaking. We quietly walked through the sanctuary and enjoyed the peaceful, spiritual time.
