  • This church is right under the Arch. Easy walk from downtown hotels. Interior is not as ornate as most Basilicas but just knowing the history of the place makes it very sacred.  more »

  • +JMJ...The solemn and reverent beauty of this Cathedral Church is awe-inspiring. This is a Church building whose interior and exterior architecture gives honor and glory to God through the display of handicraft of the marble statues, the wooden pews, the fine materials used to cover the Sanctuary chairs. How I wish I had the skills to describe the beauty of this House of Worship and Prayer. If you are ever in St Louis visiting the St Louis Arch, please consider stopping in to see for yourself the faith-related and faith-enhancing artifacts of this Old Cathedral.
  • Beautiful church. So often old churches have a kind of stone or marble floor. This church has a beautiful wood floor throughout. Historic and noble.
  • Was here for a cousin's wedding, and it was very beautiful. Only downside was the large pillars that cut between some of the pews; if you happen to be sitting in the wrong place you have to crane around to see. Probably not an issue most of the time, but we're a very large family and the bride and groom had plenty of friends there, too!
  • Disappointed that I can only give 5 stars.. Makes you want to convert to Catholic.. BEAUTIFUL.
  • Cozy and friendly neighborhood place. Food is very good, though nothing mind-blowing, but definitely worth the $$, especially these days as everything has gone completely mad price-wise.
