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.

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.
