“Great Christmas Concert”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Once a year the University of Arizona music department puts on a Christmas concert. Featured are many different choirs and orchestras from throughout the state . 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 went for the first time last Christmas, but will definitely be back.

“help for your soul and your eyes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

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 get a better appreciation.

Outside is a beautiful altar where Mass is occasionally celebrated. It has a colorful arching roof structure.

“Beautiful Cathedral”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

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.

“Beautiful Cathedral !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

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.

“I love this Cathedral”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

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.
