“Beautiful mosaics and steeples”

We hope that your visit to this spiritual center of the Archdiocese of Saint Louis will lift your spirit. Our beautiful mosaics were designed to remind all of us that God reaches into our earthly lives. You will see depictions of a cosmic story: God acting to create and redeem and sanctify humanity, and to welcome us into eternal life. Take some time to view some of the beautiful images of the architecture and mosaics of the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis in our online tour. During your visit, you'll find hundreds of items in our Gift Shop, including spiritual keepsakes and unique souvenirs. All purchase proceeds help support the upkeep of the Cathedral Basilica. You can find the gift shop off the west side of the vestibule on the main level of the Cathedral.

The picture doesn't do it justice. The finest Catholic Cathedral in the United States. Covered floor-to-ceiling in amazing mosaics. The high altar features a somewhat rare baldacchino.

Amazing! No matter what your religious affiliation, this place is worth a stop. Breathtaking art, both stained glass and mosaic. There are dedicated areas for silent prayer, but sitting almost anywhere will allow time for quiet reflection in one of the most gorgeous settings anywhere. I’ve been to multiple cathedrals in the US, and this is easily the most impressive. It’s not even a contest.

This place is nothing short of amazing! The largest collection of mosaics reside here. It is breathtaking. You cannot enter during mass. It is free to enter any other time. There is a small free museum in the basement as well. Be prepared to be awestruck especially if you enjoy art/architecture.

Very impressive cathedral! We found a road behind the church where we could park our travel trailer and truck, however parking can be limited.

Stopped in on a bus tour, and it is a beautiful church. It's hard not to be impressed with all the design elements in the building no matter what your religious beliefs are. Def recommend stopping in for a bit if you're in the area.

I've seen cathedrals in Europe that weren't this beautiful. It was awe inspiring.
