Designed in the elegant French Gothic style, Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception remains a Denver landmark and masterpiece of construction. Completed in 1912, it boasts twin 64 m (210 ft) bell spires that have dominated the surroundings ever since, but it is the church's stark white interior that will leave you awestruck. Altars, columns, statues, pulpit, and bishop's throne are all made of finest Italian marble, while colorful stained-glass windows came from the Royal Bavarian Art Institute in Munich, Germany.

  • Beautiful, French Gothic construction Cathedral Basilica in the heart of downtown Denver. Three daily masses (four on Sunday) and open hours. Tourists and photography welcome. Vintage, international-standard pipe organ, and the most leaded, stained glass than any church on the U.S. Beautiful place to visit or worship. Roman rite. Resting place of Servant of God Julia Greeley.
  • Came here for a wedding and was absolutely blown away by how beautiful everything was! Sure, the location in Denver is a bit odd, but regardless the building itself is breathtaking! The stained glass is intricately detailed and the music was divine. Everything seemed to come together quite nicely!
