Cathedral Basilica of St Peter and St Paul

The Cathedral Basilica of St Peter and St Paul displays power and might common to grand Catholic Churches around the world.

Iyes, i’s a Cathedral and a Basilica named after of two Saints: Peter and Paul in the Catholic religion. The facade’s brownstone structure is marvelous and wait until you see inside. This is one architectural pride of the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia.

The cathedral/basilica has a high vaulted dome covered in frescoes. There are 8 side chapels and the whole sanctuary can hold 2,000 devotees of the Roman Catholic Church. The main altar is ornate and elaborate and the Roman-Corinthian columns are wondrous and stunning to gape at from floor to ceiling. The stained glasses are equally magnificent with other decorations inside the cathedral/basilica. It is said that this structure is modeled after Lombard Church of St. Charles in Rome.

Don’t miss it–even if you’re not a Catholic! 🙂
