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.

Whether you are into religious buildings or not, don't miss out on admiring the exterior of this building and then venture inside to behold the stunning decor of this beautifully restored and enhanced edifice which resounds with the wealth, extravagance and stylistic good taste of the gold rush period. One of the many jewels of Sacramento.

We came into Sacramento late afternoon so decided to check this cathedral out based on other's reviews. I am so glad we did! The cathedral is beautiful inside and out. We only had a short time before closing so the tour was not available too us. We will plan on coming earlier next time so we can hear more of... More

Lovely cathedral with a Raphael copy. Go see if near Capitol for sure. I like visiting Sacramento on weekends since workday crowds not there but other businesses downtown are only M-F. But read about the renovation. .

What a beautiful Cathedral! From the minute you walk in...you can see that it is amazing. Just to sit & pray can give you a calmness. What a wonderful place to visit when in Sacramento. Don't miss it!
