All reviews beautiful church sunday mass pope john paul clear glass american architecture guided tour united states old church the lower level nice gift shop worth a stop interesting history well worth the visit small museum washington monument walk around inner harbor

A true calming refuge in the middle of a busy city. A place to reflect & calm your soul. Breathtaking architecture & painting. Touch of history with paintings gifted from Louis XVIII of France. You have to see it to truly appreciate it.

Anyone who loves history and/or architecture must go. Amazing story behind endeavors to build and Jefferson’s assistance in design. One of very few of this style cathedral in our country. The basement level is truly mind blowing. For the Catholic visitor who would go anyway......More
