The Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis - Sanctuary
USA

The Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis was designed in the Romanesque style and built between 1907 and 1909. The interior is decorated with mosaics made from over 41,000,000 glass tesserae tiles using over 8,000 shades of color that took nearly 80 years to complete.

The Cathedral was designated as a Cathedral Basilica by Pope John Paul II in 1997. The Pope came to the Cathedral Basilica in 1999 during his history-making visit to the United States in October of 1999.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
