  • Although I did not take a tour, I did attend Mass. The architecture of the building is beautiful. Having the opportunity to hear the pipe organ provided an environment of solemnity and serenity.  more »
  • Historic, majestic, and of course spiritual. After Mass take the time to look around at the stained glass, side alters, etc. You won't be disappointed.  more »

  • Baltimore's first cathedral (later superseded by the Cathedral of Mary our Queen much further north on Charles Street, and in no way its architectural match) is one of the most beautiful church buildings in America. The central dome envelopes you in the womb of Mary, as you share in the feeling of being embraced in the arms of the Blessed Mother of God. It is a superb tribute to the mystery of the Incarnation. Recently restored, bringing a bit of brightness to what had formerly been a little dowdy and dim, it is not to be missed if you are on a walking tour of central Baltimore.
  • Very nice Catholic basilica with Greek revival style. The inside is simple and with pastel colors very soothing. The crypt is the highlight of the church. Very nice Brock arched crypt with a small museum. It is worth the detour to see.
