What a beautiful stunning, picturesque cathedral. This is a Tucson original with some renovations going on. It is awe inspiring when entering and looking up and seeing the very tall ceiling and the stained glass especially above the loft, the major focal point. It makes you feel good to walk in and see this gorgeous structure. A must see when... More

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

We are member's of the Basilica in Minneapolis and love our church but this Cathedral is... 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 packed for this event. It used to be you could just walk in, but now you need reservations and it's easy to see why. It is a first class concert. I... More

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.
