Owner description: This quasi-Romanesque brick cathedral in Lafayette is worth a look.
Reviewed 13 April 2012

The Cathedral itself is so beautiful inside with all the special
appointments, lovely warm wood furnishings and serene atmosphere. The Cathedral Oak in the courtyard is a sight to behold. My brother-in-law took a picture of it that has appeared in several magazines. So picturesque with limbs to the ground.

History a plenty in this old cathedral. From the stained glass windows, to the alter for mass, this building has history.

Amazing tree next to Cathedral. Take the time to walk about and read the history of all who are laid to rest there. Great history and less hectic than New Orleans.

this is a must see when visiting Lafayette ... yea the church has beautiful stained glass ... but outside is this enormous oak tree ... you just have to have your photo taken. ... and you should walk all the way around .. and linger

If you only have a short time in Lafayette make sure you stop to see the Cathedral of St John and the tree at the side of the church. That tee is beautiful and the church structure is likewise as beautiful. you can see the steeple for many blocks so it is easy to locate. On a non church day you can park in the lot right next to the big tree.
