Singing and worship in a sacred space.

This facility is gorgeous! We sing here while the stained glass colors stream across the sanctuary. Well worth a visit.

This is a replica of Notre Dame in Paris. It of course is not as big, as old, or as grand as the actual Notre Dame but it is still one of the most beautiful structures in this area. It stands out in Covington and is a beautiful wedding venue.

We got married at the Cathedral in 1975! Quite a spectacular place. The organ & stained glass windows are worth the trip.

Easy to get to, easy to park, no entry fee, only thing I'd like to see changed - a map on the information brochure - sometimes I was not quite sure if I was looking at the right item for the description especially not being that religious and not knowing who is who.

The Cathedral of Diocese of Covington is awe-inspiring. Walk in this sacred space and you will instantly feel the peace and serenity of God. The Gothic architecture draws your eyes heaven-ward and the stained glass windows tell the story of the Gospels. The window in the northern transept is the largest hand made stained glass window in the world. You... More

Always such an impressive place and with a great view. I love to watch the people praying on the steps on Good Friday. The weather doesn't matter.

We have lived in the Cincinnati area and didn't know that this existed. I found out about on Trip Advisor! I had been to Covington a couple times which was more than enough. I can't believe that this beautiful cathedral is in Covington. This cathedral is amazing. It is huge inside. Reportedly it is patterned after Notre Dame in Paris.... More

I always stop at chapels, churches, grottos while traveling and this Basilica was really impressive, both inside and outside. It was a great stop.

We had the opportunity to tour the Basilica on a sunny Friday afternoon. The Basilica is lovely. The stained glass windows are magnificent and having the sun shinning threw them was a pure joy.
