Astounding church which I visited for Saturday Mass while I was visiting Mobile. A short walk from the Convention Center. The inside was very brightly decorated and the Mass was very nice. Love to visit the local Catholic Church for Mass whenever I go away.

Sunday mass was beautiful. Felt welcomed. The Knights of Columbus were gorgeous. The sermon spiritual.

The cathedral is beautiful. I have visited on many occasions and am still awestruck each time. If you are looking for beauty and history in Mobile you must pay a visit to the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

I first explored this beautiful basilica during an art project and have been back every chance I get. It's inspiring and certainly worth touring at least once.

I stayed downtown for 2 nights in mobile and found this cathedral on trip advisor. It was a must see before I left town. The grounds are all kept well and original with a lot of old trees. The gate around the church itself it beautiful and old. There was a mass going on at noon on a week day,... More

The interior of this cathedral is beautiful. Nice stained glass. The sign outside indicates it as the archdiocese, so we walked all the way around the building before identifying clearly that it was what we were looking for. There is a wheelchair ramp, but the door has a 1-1.5 inch step up, which was difficult to get over with the... More

One of our most beautiful churches in Mobile. The architecture is beyond words, and the huge pipe organ will take your breath away. From the stained glass windows to the beautiful stone alter depicting the last supper, the entire building will amaze you as you walk through it or sit in on a service. It is an active church, so...
