Description

Beautiful from the outside due to its Neo-Gothic architecture ornamented with stained-glass saints, and home to highly detailed Stations of the Cross, the New York Cathedral is an international landmark and a beacon of hope for Catholics around the world.

This self-guided tour of the cathedral, led by the archbishop's voice, will teach the church's history and display its main sights, including a pietà – a depiction of Mary cradling the crucified Christ – larger than Michelangelo's.
