We had driven by the Basilica on the trolley tour and decided to go back and see the inside. It was stunning. Beautiful mosaics tell the Biblical stories. It is the kind of place where you can spend a little time or you can sit...More

The mosaics inside the basilica have worldwide renown for good reason. Covering 83,000 square feet, it is the largest mosaic collection in the world outside Russia. These mosaics were begun in 1912 and completed in 1986 for a truly spectacular interior.

During my stay in St Louis, I visited the church a number of times to attend mass and each time I was impressed by its magnificence. It is not just large but also very beautiful. The mosaics are simply superb.

Be sure to take some time so see this amazing Cathedral. The tile work is amazing. I've had the opportunity to view some of the Cathedrals in Europe and this one is just as, if not more in some ways, stunning.

The Basilica is simply amazing. Beautiful mosaics throughout will leave you awestruck. Don’t forget to stop by the museum in the basement to learn more about the Basilica and how the mosaics were made.

While it is a Catholic Basilica, I encourage anyone that likes amazing art and architecture to stop here. There is nothing like it in America and really the world. The largest concentration of mosaics in America. It's free so you can stop in for a...More

The Cathedral Basilica is a jewel in the city. The tour is advised because you learn so much about the structure and the furnishings. The highlight of the visit is the amazing mosaics throughout the sanctuary. The Basilica rivals much of what I saw in...More

We went there for a wedding. Beautiful church and even though the artwork on the ceiling (and pillars) is painted on, from a distance it looked really rich as if was molded or carved onto the ceiling.
