Took only 15 minutes to see, but very beautiful and worthwhile to see. There were many tombs present. This is a short walk from downtown. The grounds were pretty. The altar, stained glass, gold lattice work and church were beautiful. The exterior columns are amazing.

The stained glass is beautiful. Yet unless you are really into cathedrals or are Catholic, it would be easy to leave this one off of your list.

This classical columned cathedral and basiica is in beautiful condition. The style of the architecture is unusual in that there is a long nave without arms. Definitely worth the visit. Parking was easy along all sides of the building.

This is a must see when you visit Mobile, AL. Amazing for young and old alike and a short walk to Spot of Tea restaurant. The park across the street is a wonderful place to enjoy a walk or just sit and watch the people.

Didn't have the best of tour guides by the CVB, but we stopped here and the other tour guide with us did a wonderful presentation on this beautiful place.
