We visited the Cathedral with 2 one-year-old's who particularly enjoyed the garden and the various animal statues. A very calm oasis in the middle of the city.

We happened to be here during Sunday morning services. Alabaster windows and large tapestries are amazing. Extremely large open courtyard in front with sculpture garden. Be sure to take a look at the performing arts high school just over the highway behind the cathedral. It...More

Enter the huge doors and see why this cathedral is so unlike others. It feels more like a museum than a church. If in the area, it is worth a quick stroll around.

Good and beautiful place for visit. The place is very big with a lot of sculpture and paintings. You may also see Mausoleum.

This modern cathedral is gorgeous and inspiring. It is a wonderful place for a quiet prayer or moment of meditation. The murals on the wall and smaller chapels are uplifting.

We were sure we would hate it. We fell in love with the modern architecture we thought we'd hate in a worship space. So well designed. Airy, warm, light, uplifting. Great organization and volunteers to help you. Great gift shop. Easy parking underground. Terrific organ/choir!!!...More

It may not be Sagrada Familia-level unusual but this massive modern monolith is quite impressive in its own right. And it's much more complete.

I didn't expect this church to be so amazing. The whole area is well designed but the interior of the building is unique. I liked most the way the light enters this building. A must visit for architects in LA.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
