“So glad we stopped by...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2011

The ceilings are amazing. We weren't sure what to expect, as we were trying to visit St Louis on a budget and this was a free attraction, but we were both so happy we stopped by. Very beautiful! Definitely recommend!

“AMAZING!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2011

Wasn't really sure that I wanted to spend time checking out a Basilica, but, boy, am I glad we did. It was just amazing - so beautiful and interesting. Our guide was so enthusiastic and generous showing us around and explaining the history of the Basilica. Highly recommended!
