"Come, Let Us Pray"

Though the Cathedral Basilica's Romanesque exterior is undoubtedly impressive, the interior of the cathedral is what is truly inspiring. The seat of the Catholic archdiocese in St. Louis, this massive complex contains a mosaic collection that is said to be the world's largest. Over the course of 76 years, 41.5 million pieces of glass tesserae were affixed to the walls and ceiling to illustrate numerous religious stories. The life story of King St. Louis IX, the city's namesake, is told in mosaic on the walls of the portico. Choir concerts are scheduled throughout the year, and choral programs and organ recitals take place on most Sunday afternoons. Check the website for more details.
