And this does not compare well with the finest Churches of Europe. That said there were some nice stained glass windows and I'm sure is a pleasant venue to attend. It did have a musty smell.

I dropped by this church while I was waiting for a museum to open. I was blown away by the inside. They have some incredible architecture. The stained glass windows are very beautiful. So are the statues. I took over 50 pictures of the inside and out. Mostly of the stained glass windows. This place is a must see if... More

Beautiful stained glass, statues and architecture. There's a gift shop on the street level. I was not there during mass.

Stopped by here when I was in downtown Phoenix. This is an amazing church that has wonderful architecture and is just over 100 years old. Check it out.

This church is amazingly beautiful and worth the visit. Right down the street from the Rosson House (also worth the visit).

On our walk back from a museum we came across the Basilica. It took our breath away! We walked through the park and also visited the gift shop. This was a great addition to our walk.

Daily noon Mass at the Basilica in downtown Phoenix is always a prayerful pleasure. Beautiful music is always played, but if you're trying to get away for lunch, it doesn't take more than the lunch hour.

Downtown Phoenix is kind of lacking in locations that make me want to linger. However, St. Mary's is a huge exception. I was in town with my wife and had a lot of time on my hands while she attended a convention. I found myself drawn back to St. Mary's a number of times. The basilica is beautiful. Although we...
