This legendary house of worship counts Presidents, movie stars and business moguls among past and present attendees. While its intricate marble towers are a marvel of Gothic Revival architecture, St. Pat’s interior—including the Louis Tiffany–designed altar and spectacular rose window—is tremendous as both a feat of master craftsmanship and a source of spiritual inspiration.

During the time we visited, the Cathedral was under construction but it hardly took away from the incredible Gothic Architecture or the intricate details of the House of Worship. I hope this doesn't sound corny but when you walk in it feels truly peaceful and you feel solemnly introspective. We felt truly blessed when we gave our donations, lit the candles and said our prayers.
