This catheral is so beautiful. We spent over an hour there absorbing the beauty and wonder of this building. For any Christian, you can't help feel the presence of God in this place. For others - you will still enjoy the architecture and beauty of the mosaic tiles.

Located in a lovely area, just three blocks from great resturants this gem should not be missed. Tour the museum, too. Well worth the trip and it's free!

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
