Came to visit the St Cecilias Catholic Cathedral with family. The outside architecture of this Cathedral is awesome. It's so massive. The cement scrolls are a really nice touch.

Attended the flower festival this weekend, and completely forgot about Winter. The tour through the Cathedral passed by floral interpretation vignettes that followed this year's theme of "A night at the movies". We saw Lawrence of Arabia, Amadeus, The King and I, and Mary Poppins, to name only a few. We then went through the Cathedral Museum, and bought lunch,... More

This was a beautiful, old cathedral. The Mass was moving and the church itself is breathtaking. Highly recommend.

Wonderful architecture and organ, you don't want to miss any of the concerts given in this wonderful cathedral. Sit in one of the two side chapels or the main church, pray, meditate, be still and absorb this sacred space.

What a wonderful place. Nine chapels, great museum, lots of history and tons of artifacts and art. I'm not big on this stuff and I came out quite impressed. Not Vatican impressed, Omaha impressed.

Went to a Christmas celebration here. It is beautiful setting. The feeling I experienced while there was very spiritual. The sound was very well managed.

I haven't really entered in this church but I could see it from my hotel room. Wondering what's that magnificent place. It looks so beautiful during Sunset.

Spontaneously entered this lovely cathedral. Very beautiful and tranquil cathedral. Definitely worth a stop. There were small shrines / alters students and famliies had created for All Soul's Day. Very much enjoyed looking at these.

There is always something comforting to me about a quite place of worship. While not everyone is spiritual - this is a beautifully quiet place of solitude. The views and architecture of the church are spectacular. Having traveled in Europe and gone into many of the cathedrals - this place had a beauty all it's own. The stained glass windows,... More
