One of the oldest churches in the U.S., St. Louis Cathedral remains one of my favorite churches to visit and to photograph. It is a beautiful church with history and character both inside and out. Not only is the architecture beautiful and striking, but the murals and paintings inside are also quite moving. For me, St. Louis Cathedral is to... More

I always make sure to visit this beautiful spiritual Cathedral each trip. On this occasion I was most fortunate to attend a touching Mass. It was all about "love" and brought tears to my eyes.

A warm hushed church that is most welcoming, especially the air conditioning on a hot day. Interior is beautiful as is exterior.

Another must see. The amazing history is literally written all over the Cathedral. This is a great stop with the park and Cafe Du Monde located near. Lots of art surrounding the area as well.

The St. Louis Cathedral is one of the oldest Roman Catholic churches in the country. It is beautiful and worth the visit. Also, check mass times in you're interested in attending one.
