A Visit to the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis -- St. Louis, MO


We recently had an opportunity to visit the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis, in St. Louis, Missouri.

The cathedral was completed in 1914 and has one of the largest collections of mosaic in the Western Hemisphere.   The cathedral was designated a basilica by Pope John Paul II in 1997.

Certainly one of the most beautiful churches I have seen -- my photos do not do it justice.  Happily, tours of the cathedral are available.  For more information please visit the cathedral's website HERE.

The mosaic artistry in the cathedral basilica is magnificent.  I wish we continued to put that much thought, design, and effort in creating today's buildings, as we did back then.

Hi, Lisa -- thank you!  We attended services there and then had some time to tour the cathedral -- beautiful

Hi, Myrl -- Even if the craftsmen still existed, in inflation-adjusted dollars they'd never have the money necessary to re-create these buildings today.  Have a great weekend!
