St Augustine Cathedral is a beautiful, old landmark Catholic church in downtown Tucson. The main cathedral has three alters, gorgeous stained glass windows and wood bench seating. The entire vestibule of the church is painted with a life-size mural of different figures prominent in the Catholic church (eg. Mother Teresa). And, it contains a couple of life-size statues. There is... More

Wow what a find. This place is a landmark example on a wonderful church, the murals in the interior and the stained glass make this place inspiring and worthy of a stop to see and pray a bit if you want. The Sunday schedule even has a service with mariachis on one time slot. too Cool. The beauty and art... More

This is a beautiful cathedral with a lot of history. I loved the outside and inside, there are a lot of beautiful architectural details. It is also very majestic during the Holidays!

The Cathedral is ornate outside but especially inside. The long nave floor is pitched toward the altar so that everyone can see better. It seats over 1,200 people. We did not allow enough time to look at the stone work or the murals or stain glass in detail. I suggest reading about the church before you visit in order to... More

I visited the beautiful cathedral in November to see the beautiful Christmas decorations in preparations for the birth of Christ. It is always a majestic sight to see. The church is packed with worshippers during the Christmas season. Full of festive atmophere.

Nice photo opp. The exterior is beautiful and well maintained. Parkings just across the street from the Cathedral are good choices for visiting downtown Tucson.

One of the prettier Cathedrals I've been to. Love the SW look to it. Worth a visit if you need to attend mass or just want to see a lovely church.

I attended a weekday noon mass with my wife during a recent visit. The service was surprisingly well-attended. The church has been recently renovated, and the murals in the entry are very pretty. The exterior is well maintained, as well.
