Although this is a tourist spot, it is still an active cathedral. My husband and I had a morning of free time while visiting our son in Tucson so decided to view some of the cooler, quieter venues. Although the cathedral is in the downtown area, the campus itself is very peaceful and beautiful inside and out. Apparently the doors... More

St. Augustine Cathedral is well worth a stop if visiting Downtown Tucson. It is lovely to look at inside and outside. The Spanish Colonial Revival exterior features a sandstone facade that displays a saguaro, yucca, horned lizard and various local cacti.The structure also displays a pair of truncated towers. Inside, the entrance room shows off a nicely done mural design... More

We came to this Cathedral for Mariachi Mass about 14 years ago and loved the lively music and atmosphere, even though the entire mass was in Spanish and only my mom could understand what was being said. So, on this trip we were planning on the same experience when we brought our kids while vacationing in Tucson. However, when we... More

Well maintained Cathedral Church of the Catholic Diocese of Tucson. Were blessed to meet the Bishop after Mass. Stop in to say a prayer on your visit here.

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

Wish they would restore this building. It looks lovely in front and from a distance, but it's pretty much falling apart.

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
