This is not your typical Catholic Church, for me it feels like a performing arts venue. However, there are side alcoves that provide private space for meditation. And downstairs are the most beautiful stained glass windows that are original to St Viibiana's Church (formerly the...More

Enter the huge doors and see why this cathedral is so unlike others. It feels more like a museum than a church. If in the area, it is worth a quick stroll around.

Good and beautiful place for visit. The place is very big with a lot of sculpture and paintings. You may also see Mausoleum.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
