  • More than a place of worship, this Catholic Cathedral is a tourist attraction full of masterpiece artwork that you cannot miss! When you go I recommend that you take a close note of the following: -the beautiful and unique altar -the huge organ whose pipes are tuned to generate enough sound to fill this whole cathedral -Each and every image of the passion of Christ that's made out of mosaic tiles to create such beautiful and perfectly made images -The elegant confession rooms -The embroidery in the panel drapes of the various saints/important people -The unique and modern architecture of the building, both inside and out -The altar for St. Viviana, patrón of the Cathedral of our Lady of the Angels in the Mausoleum and it's small chapel downstairs -The mosaic image(s) of our Lady of Guadalupe (both indoor and outdoor) and it's relic piece that has not decomposed after hundreds of years -The outdoor garden with animal statues and peaceful atmosphere -The cafe and gift shop P.S. a huge thank you to the multiple security officers patrolling the area and gifting 90minute parking passes after mass!
  • Love everything about this church. The solemnity is feel and can focus on mass even if its so huge and many people attending here. This beautiful church brings out the best chorale group and the sound system are wonderful to listen to.
