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.

Attend a Mass and enjoy the sanctuary for peace and love. Even if you are not of "faith" you will feel the presence of something very special. A land mark of Sacremento.

When visiting the capitol, we walked by to also see this historic cathedral, Construction started on this cathedral in 1887. It is architecturally interesting to see. The congregation is still very active.

They were between two weddings, so I was able to run in for a look. It is truly a beautiful cathedral. The dome ceiling and alter were quite impressive.

I happened upon this church while my rapid transit train passed the station. I jumped off the train at the Cathedral stop and happened upon a wedding party that was taking pictures outside of the groom and bride and family members. The church is eminently camera worthy and I got a few nice pictures of the exterior. I walked in... More
