“Beautiful piece of history”
Review of Old Cathedral

Old Cathedral
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We visited as a family early (around 7:30am) on Saturday morning. We went to check out the arch and ended up walking through the cathedral. This cathedral was the first Catholic cathedral west of the Mississippi. It was built in the 1770s. We were able to tour with no one present, which was a cool experience. I was able to light an offering candle. There are several altars and of course the stations of the cross throughout.

I was in there about ten years ago. It's beautiful and very well-maintained. If you go downtown in the summer, you will always see wedding parties on the steps of the cathedral. Having the Arch as your backdrop doesn't hurt either.

Here in St. Louis we have two Cathedrals, the old which is downtown close to the waterfront. It is used mostly for weddings now and it is
quite beautiful inside. Something worth seeing.

When I had a moment to get away from the conference and walk down the street to the Old Cathedral, I found a starkly beautiful and spiritual place to take a breath and got some lovely pictures as well.
