It is beautiful cathedral as you might find in europe(smaller) but really something to see. because it is a working church you need to be cautious with photos at time. But I do recommend it. The...

Breathtaking, a must see even if you aren't Catholic. If you appreciate art, beauty, sanctity, peace and quiet you will get an overwhelming sense of being submerged in a sea of all these descriptors that will leave you speechless.

The Cathedral is an important part of California history. The Cathedral is well preserved and reflects a classic Catholic Church built in the last days of the 19th Century.

We happened to see this cathedral mentioned somewhere peripherally, not as a major attraction, but were fortunate to be there on a Sunday morning for the free tour. Excellent and informative. If you are a church buff (as my friends and I are), you will love it. We toured the cathedral and then attended the Mass following to complete the... More

This building is gorgeous, which is incredible since it's in a very "hip" area! What a peaceful place to sit and reflect outside on a beautiful NorCal day!

We were strolling around the Capitol and decided to check out the Cathedral. Amazing inside! I could not believe how impressive it was. We didn't get to really explore as there was a wedding when we visited. We will go back to check out the stained glass windows.

We came by during our stroll through the city and gave it a chance. As soon we were inside we were stunned. This Cathedral is impressive and I was sitting there with an open mouth. The place was so quiet, so peaceful (and I am not religious at all), I could have been sitting there for hours.

A place of quiet and solitude in the middle of the city. I am not Catholic and still greatly enjoyed my visit here. Highly recommend.

The cathedral is magnificent and calls to mind the great cathedrals of Europe. If you can arrange to be there when the choir performs, do it. The voices and pipe organ carry you to an enchanting, medieval place. It is worth the visit, whether you are religious or not.
