“Beautiful Cathedral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Stained glass windows were exquisite. Beautiful. I was impressed with the location, just a few blocks from Mormon Temple Square. I was told that when the Mormons were laying out the city in the 1800s, they gave the large parcel of land to the Catholics so the Catholics would have a place to build their cathedral. Pleased to learn there are more than 30 catholic churches in Salt Lake City alone. Interesting.

I try to make it there every year. It is really beautiful whether you are Catholic or not. Amazing paintings. Plenty of seating.

“Beautiful! Artwork fantastic!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Absolutely beautiful woodwork and artwork. The signs of the cross are very interesting and stunning, more modernistic but fascinating to study.

“A Tribute to the Diversity of Salt Lake City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

I am not catholic, but the Cathedral of the Madeline is a beautiful place which I love to visit. I rivals anything I have seen in Europe. I receive a welcoming sense of 'Peace' when I enter. Thank you for welcoming me as a visitor.

“A little scary”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

I went inside back in the 80's, at night, with a date, who didn't know how to stay close. Other than an organist, no one was within eyesight. I could tell that the structure was beautiful but I would recommend a visit when people are there.
