Take time to stop and experience the peace and beauty of this church and grounds. It was interesting to learn of the history of the church including the Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto. We really enjoyed seeing this during our Key West stay.

St Mary Star of the Sea is the main Catholic Church in Key West. It is a lovely place to visit, has well maintained gardens, and often, when the weather is nice, which it usually is, they will open all of the French doors which line both sides of the church giving you the feeling of being outdoors yet still...

If you like history this is a place to visit. You can take the trolley and hop off visit and hop back on to the next site.

Beautiful Catholic Church in Key West was granted the Basilica Status recently. It is located on a large, beautiful piece of land in the heart of Key West with a school, chapel, grotto to Mary and a rosary garden. Wonderful choir at the Masses and a large membership, so go early to the 10:30am Mass if you want a seat!

This magnificent Roman Catholic Church (open to all believers...) offers a magnificent spiritual experience for visitors who might enjoy attending a service in the open air amidst stations of the cross in the Crucifiction Garden, or within the newly renovated cathedral with open stained-glass doors where crowing roosters against the back-drop of gorgeous, multi-colored flora and exotic trees.. may be...

This is a must stop, go ahead and time your visit with a service. There is something very special about the service, they open the windows/doors that are on the sides of the building. It is a unique experience. We go every time we are in Key West. We are Catholic, I like going to churches when we vacation, they... More

What a beautiful basilica and garden. Don't miss the chapel (open 24/7) Gift shop hard to find but worth the effort. Its around the back of the rectory in the parking lot.

A nice place to worship, easy to find, easy access. It also close to other point of interests such as Ernest Hemingway house, not far from Duval Street. The display of Lady of Lourdes,I believe, is next to the church. Erick B Naples FL
