You don't have to be religious to appreciate this gem. I believe this has the most pieces of mosaics in the world. This word is way overused, but "awesome' definitely describes this cathedral! Don't miss it

The Cathedral Basilica is wonderful. You must visit if vacationing in the St. Louis area. I will certainly revisit when I return to the area

We've visited many beautiful cathedrals, but as soon as we walked into this one, our jaws dropped and all we could say was, "wow!" The fact that every single scene on the ceilings and walls are all made from mosaics is simply fascinating! This is definitely worth your time to visit!

I am in the process of moving to Saint Louis. I have visited the city twice now and I am sure this is one of the places I will visit over and over again. The mosaics on the ceilings are just wonderful. You have to travel to Europe to see architecture like this. What an incredible find!!!

Absolutely stunning, just breath-taking. I can't recommend this place enough. If you're within 100 miles of St. Louis, do yourself a favor and go.
