An architectural gem. I have visited Cathederals throughout Europe and the Americas, this one has its own special place and is among the very best.

The Cathedral is truly a national treasure and represents putting God first in all things, above Government, Business, etc. This is why the Cathedral sits atop the hill and the building is full of beauty and awe.

Seeing the inside of this church is spectacular. The size is amazing and the location beautiful. It is one the largest churches in the US.

This building is immense! We came around the street corner, looked up and went “WOW”! There’s a nice parking lot for visitors next door (which we found by accident). Inside, the stained glass is amazing as are the statues. I’m not a big Catholic church...More
