  • 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!
  • 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.
  • You can still see the beauty of the church even during repair. I cannot wait till it is done and I can return to see it again. I just returned to this beautiful Church. I went to Mass 12:10pm. It is a Church with museum qualities. I managed to talk with one of the men working there and he told me some of the history of the Church. I could tell he was very proud to be a small part of this wonderful place. If you get a chance to see an elderly person there ask tbem about the Church and I will bet you also will get some great stories.
