We took some time out for a visit to the Cathedral of St. Paul since we like to tour them all over the world. These newer US cathedrals don't stand up much in comparison to the astounding ones in Europe but many are still very beautiful. This is one of them. If you're on your way to see the mansions... More

Not even Catholic, but loved this place. The architecture is amazing. The place is absolutely stunning. The artwork was breathtaking. Could have stayed longer, but we were there only about an hour. You basically have full access to all areas, which is not how it is in all cathedrals. It was just lovely. Would highly recommend a visit!

We were here at the Cathedral for a wedding, what a majestic building, just wished we were really welcome to partake at God's table.

It will take your breath away from the moment you walk in. They offer free tours weekdays at 1 pm, which I found to be very interesting, gave great perspective on what it takes to construct such a place, and called attention to details I never would have noticed on my own. Lasted a little over an hour.

The cathedral is located in the well known neighborhood of Summit (close to the Summit Hill House). Surprise is the parking lot of the cathedral since street parking can be a challenge. There is no fee to enter but donation boxes are around besides the usual way to support by giving when you light the candles. It is a cathedral... More

As good as some of the cathedrals I have seen in Europe. Plan on spending at least a couple of hours marveling at the grandeur.

Really in awe of the size and beauty of this cathedral. Really recommend visiting. Must see the Shrine of the Nations and the replica of Michelangelo's Pieta.
