Harrisburg is a beautiful city downtown. The cathedral is a close walk to the Capitol building, some other nice churches, and a vibrant restaurant scene.

We stopped in for a quick visit on Sunday before touring the Capitol building. Beautiful inside and out. The green dome is delightful. Well worth checking out if in downtown Harrisburg.

The church is absolutely beautiful. I love church architecture and this is amazing in my book! I would recommend a visit if you are in the area.
