My family and I went last weekend and I have to say it took my breath away. I loved everything about it. One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. If you get a chance go you won't be sorry.

This church is a site to see, and the stained glass windows are fantastic. We went twice because we missed the spiral stairs in the center of the church that lead down to the crypt. This is a very inspirational place.

This beautiful Catholic Cathedral is a must see in Mobile. The high arched ceilings are impressive. Most spectacular are the colorful stained-glass windows. Not only are they impressive in size, but they are inticately detailed.

There was a mass in progress at noon on Thursday so we couldn't really walk around to view each window. The windows have beautiful color. This is worth a visit and is right downtown

I've been to a few European Catholic churches that are a few hundred years old and this Mobile church is very similar in architectural style. BUT it is in immaculate condition (pardon the pun) unlike some of those European churches. The photos of this place DO reflect the visual elements accurately. On-street PARKING is a bit hit and miss, as... More

I went during the day and sat in a back pew just to feel this beauty. No services were being conducted yet the doors were unlocked so people could enter. I am not a church going person, but enjoyed this building from an art & historical aspect

The most beautiful church in the south, everyone should stop by and take in the majestic white marble and stunning peach accents.
