Cathedral of the Madeleine Review

Balance the history of the city's dominant religion by visiting the inspiring gathering place of Utah's largest religious minority, Catholics. In 2009 the cathedral celebrated its 100th birthday. The building's red Romanesque exterior bristles with gargoyles, and its Gothic interior showcases bright frescoes and a large organ. The highly regarded Madeleine children's choir gives concerts regularly (especially during the Christmas season), and tours of the cathedral are offered every Sunday at 12:30. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    An anomaly in the city

    Old style Catholic cathedral is unusual in this Mormon city. Worth a look on the way out to taking a Governor's Mansion tour.
