Fodor's Expert Review Cathedral of the Madeleine
Although the Mormon Temple just to the west is Salt Lake's most prominent religious landmark, this red Romanesque cathedral stands high above the city's north side and is a stunning house of worship in its own right. The exterior bristles with gargoyles, and its Gothic interior showcases bright frescoes, intricate wood carvings, and a 4,066-pipe 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.
