The location of Saint Peter and Paul Basilica make it easy to stop in for a quick visit. It is a beautiful example of craftsmanship from a buy gone ear.

We were staying at the Sheraton directly behind this church and decided to step in and take a look. When we walked in, it was breathtaking. We just stood there for a few minutes taking in the beauty. Since we aren't Catholic, we did not stay for services, but I'm so glad we went in. It is very impressive.

If traveling in Philly, this is a definite destination stop. Tours are free daily. The Basilica was breathtaking, yet I felt that I was very welcome there. The staff was friendly and informative. The ambiance of this cathedral was heart-warming. The grand pipe organ was unbelievable, even tho we did not get to hear any music. This definitely made me feel like I was back in Europe!

The cathedral is very impressive. It reminded us of an Italian cathedral. It was a special experience for mass.
