A beautiful cathedral with a public square in a nice area with a lot of shops and dining. Quite a spectacular church for a city of this size. Be sure to descend the spiral staircase inside on the left near the front.

What a lovely historical cathedral. It was super hot when we were in Mobile, but I'm glad we took the time to see this cathedral. The stain glass windows are breath taking.

We attended the Sunday 10:30 am mass at the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception after seeing online information. It was an extremely beautiful church! We stayed after mass and toured the Cathedral. Beautiful ceiling, altar and stained glass windows! A circular stair case leads down to a crypt for burial of bishops. There is an extensive history about this... More

I have walked by a millions times over and never had the chance to go inside. It was such a reminder of my religion and the beauty within.

Even from the outside - this Cathedral is beautiful - but once you step inside the doors.......WOW! The stained glass alone is worth the visit. And it is FREE! So - if you are walking down Dauphin Street - don't miss an opportunity to see inside this incredible Cathedral.

Beautiful church and Catholic service. People were dressed respectfully, which is unusual anymore. The mass was beautiful!
