A beautiful building, lovingly restored & maintained. Lovely internal light, tranquil & peaceful space. Guide available to talk about the building & its history, and answer any questions visitors may have. Highly decorated stations of the cross. Another unusual decorative feature are the painted pillars....More

Built in 1874 this building of worship is exquisite. Self guided tours open daily. Check Cathrdral of St. John the Baptist website for current information. Really a cool place to think of someone and say a personal prayer.

Only street parking is available but usually there are places available. The cathedral also is a designated stop on the bus and trolley tours, on/off all day.

Like the other people who have replied to this question I do not believe that there are any such Holy Relics on display in this Cathedral.
