“Church is filled with glittering, glowing glass mosaics, the architecture is top-notch. You must see it!”
You must see the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis! I love historic churches and we always check them out whenever we pass one, but this church is really really special. We went in on a Sunday before evening Mass and there was an organist playing. The interior of the church is filled with a golden glow due to the thousands..maybe millions of pieces of glittering gold glass pieces on the ceilings. It was so peaceful in there. It was far more grand and ornate than I thought it would be after looking at pictures online. I never expected something like this in the U.S! You definitely don't have to be religious to fully appreciate the beauty of this church. The mosaic museum is $1 but you can just walk in the front doors and they welcome you to look around. There is parking on the street and some on the backside of the church. Again, make sure you see the inside of this breathtaking church!!!!!
