On a walk on Dauphin Street, we stopped in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and found Saturday mass underway. We took seats on the back and discreetly shot a few photos. It was absolutely beautiful and the highlight of our walk downtown.

The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception is interesting for both its exterior and interior design. Worth a short visit when visiting Mobile AL

I enjoy going to churches in different cities. This is a remarkable church with beautiful stained windows. Architecture was amazing from the floors to the ceilings. It was a suprise to have an organist playing while we visited the church on off hours. The spiral staircase to the crips was beautiful.

This building is a must see in Downtown Mobile.The stained glass windows are awe inspiring. The pipe organ is impressive.

We stumbled across this cathedral and wandered inside. How beautiful! Well worth the time to admire the stained glass, the magnificent ceiling and the building in general. It was a quiet and peaceful place with easy parking right in front with a nice park area you can hang out in too.

This place has is a must see on Mobile. It is absolutely beautiful-the kind of place that cannot be built today. The ceiling and columns are full of gold leaf. We went down to the crypt too, which was not interesting.

This is very close to downtown. You should stop and see if you can. It's really a beautiful old church with beautiful architecture and stain glass. Peaceful and serenity- be respectful. A feast for your eyes. If you are lucky enough you may hear choir practice.

Didn't spend a long time there since they were cleaning the floors, but a beautiful place to walk in for a few minutes and admire the beauty!!
