The Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis

We were surprised to find this cathedral in St. Louis!! I don't believe that there are many in the U.S. so to see this was so exciting. It was constructed between 1907 and 1914. The outside is Romanesque but the inside Byzantine. The dome and roofs are covered in brilliant green tiles which, unfortunately, I hardly noticed because the morning of our visit was too dreary!
