Owner description: This quasi-Romanesque brick cathedral in Lafayette is worth a look.

if you think the church is beautiful, which it is, you ought to see the oak tree beside the church. It is probably a few hundred years old. View the cemetery also, many very old graves to see and appreciate.

This is a beautiful church. We also enjoyed seeing the 500 year old oak tree and walked around the cemetery. Highly recommend!

The gardens, the detail in the Cathedral . . . add to that we attended a wedding with amazing music so the acoustics are great as well.

Pictures don't do this Cathedral justice. The landscaping around it is magnificent as well. It was easy to get to and we parked on the street. Seeing the 500+ year old tree was exciting! It was beautiful!!
