“A gem of a building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

This building has an interesting past which I encourage you to check out before stopping by...the windows, the design, the beauty all require you to stop and look closer. As the sun sets into the windows its beauty radiates inside

“Beautiful Cathedral”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

The stain glass windows are breathtaking! You would just have to see them to believe how gorgeous they truly are. When we walked in, we were greeted by a very nice lady with a smile and told to look around as long as we wanted. A stop here is well worth the visit.

“Hidden Gem in Northern Kentucky”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

If you are visiting Cincinnati just cross over one of the bridges and visit this beauty of a church. This cathedral is absolutely wonderful. Architecture and the stained glass in this church is worth the visit alone.
Pipe organ and music by the choirs are not to be missed on Sundays.

“Definitely worth an hour of your time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

The architecture, art, stained glass and wood carvings in this basilica are absolutely worth seeing. We were shocked that it is only about one century old, as it rivals the European churches that are many, many centuries older. Easy, free parking, with free self-guided tour.

“Wow! A Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

I can't start to explain how beautiful this is!! You must take the time to go see it. It is open where you can just go in and spend as much time as you desire. It is confusing to find because there are so many one way streets. But do not give up, it is worth it!
