This was the church I attended while growing up. It is a beautiful church that has been modernized. The modernization was tastefully done to preserve the historical features of the church. The church hosts regular art events including classical music, dance, and other performance arts. This really lends to the overall ambiance of the church as an inviting place for all to visit and enjoy.

Beautiful Cathedral in downtown San Jose. Very beautiful inside. The seating is very unique. It is shaped in a half circle around the pulpit. Very pretty intricate details

Great old church with a great history adjacent to the money part of town. Wonder what God thinks about that?

Attend mass, walk around, show up during afternoon hours when docents are available to talk about the place... just go in, whatever your inclinations! Very enjoyable place to visit.
