The Basilica is open for tours during the day and this place is so peaceful inside. Great history about its building and architecture design. Reverent inside and most of all a very peaceful place. There are also devotional areas inside to Jesus, Mary, Joseph and...More

We viewed this stunning church right when it opened at 10:00 am. The wood carvings, stained glass windows, massive organ pipes, and tiled stations of the cross were breath-taking to behold. The garden, although small, was well tended and there was even a small 'reflection'...More

The workers are always happy to help you and the cathedral is absolutely stunning. I believe some records are held for largest stain glass windows in the world.

Most historic churches can advertise wonderful pieces of art. This basilica contains walls of detailed stained glass, some of the largest in the world. Of an entirely different medium, large mosaics depict the story of Christ's passion in excruciating detail. It all leaves one speechless....More

I attended a friends wedding here. It was enchanting, romantic, and gorgeous! Beautiful architecture. We stayed at a hotel in Cincinnati, and it was a short drive across the bridge.

Walking into this church is like stepping into a European cathedral. You forget where you are. The stained glass is amazing. It is well worth a trip across the river to view it.

You simply MUST take time to stop by. Pictures do not do this church justice. Don't forget to walk around through the gardens. Search for the gargoyles while you're here too. We almost missed them. Lovely, just lovely.

I have visited many Cathedrals in Europe and this rivals many of them! The stained glass windows and arches are fascinating. And don't forget to check out the gargoyles!! There was a guided tour on Sunday after the 10:00 Mass. Very informative and interesting!

Did not even know about this until checking on Trip Advisor. This cathedral is beautiful. Probably the most beautiful stained glass I have ever seen (and so much if it). We were delighted that someone was rehearsing on "one" of the 3 organs they have....More
