Fodor's Review

A collaboration of Biltmore House–head architect Richard Sharp Smith and the Spanish engineer-architect Rafael Gustavin, this elaborate Catholic basilica was completed in 1909. It follows a Spanish-Renaissance design, rendered in brick and polychrome tile, and has a large, self-supporting dome with Catalan-style vaulting. Self-guided tours are available any time the church is open (free brochures are available in the vestibule or from the basilica's website). Groups of five or more can request a guided tour by filling out the form on the church's website at least a week in advance.
