This Basilica is the height of incredible architecture and an absolutely must see for individuals that appreciate architecture and history. Nothing short of totally ornate in every part of this building from the pulpit area, to the hallways and isles to the museum downstairs. Amazing beauty inside and out! One of the best sites in St.Louis which is amazing since there is so much to see in that fantastic city!

This is pure art and a MUST SEE if you are in the St Louis area.The used mosaics are not the same like in the wonderful cathedrals of the Bavarian county in the Southern part of Germany and just that makes it extraordinary
