This is grand and worthy of the Cathedral designation. We enjoy visiting old churches and spending a little quiet time. The cathedral has maintained its old charm yet is kept in tip top condition. Lots to see inside from the lavishly ornate dome to the stained glass windows to the beautifully decorated altar to the big piped organ. When we... More

Quiet place to find some solitude in the chaos of the city. Classic architecture, beautiful music recitals and tours offered two days a week.

This is the most beautiful Cathedral in the Greater Sacramento area. I had my high school baccalaureate mass here and it is a very popular venue for weddings. You can see the dome and spire from all over downtown, and it was one of the tallest buildings in the city before the modern office towers went up. If you are... More

The Cathedral underwent an extensive renovation, which brought back features covered for many years. It is a beautiful and peaceful place to pray. The choir is exceptional, as are the cantors. Mass there is well attended and the priests are from many ethnic backgrounds.

Very beautiful church to visit in downtown Sacramento. For a cathedral it is not over done or cluttered. It is a mid 1800s structure. Parking was a little tricky to find and there way a lot of one way streets to navigate.

This is the seat of the Bishop of Sacramento - it was restored a couple of years ago. It is often the site of funerals for major public figures, even ones who are not Catholic. Even if you are not religious it is a beautiful structure.
