St Augustine Cathedral

Saint Augustine Cathedral, in the heart of Downtown Tucson, is the Roman Catholic Mother Church in the Old Pueblo.  In 1860s Father Joseph Machebeuf conducted a survey of the Tucson area, and decided that this area with a population of 600, needs a Church.  Originally built in 1868, rebuilt in 1897, then transformed to a brick structure in 1928, and finally completed in a Mexican baroque form, in 1928.  This Cathedral has Pope Pius XI Coat of Arms, a large 13th century Crucifix, a pipe organ, and beautiful stain glass windows.  St. Augustine Cathedral will host your Spiritual and Sacramental Wedding with a 1250 seating capacity and a lot of banquet space with an outdoor placita.  Go to there Web Site for wedding guidelines.

Trip Advisor Reviews

“St Augustine Cathedral is a beautiful, old landmark Catholic Church in downtown Tucson. The main cathedral has three Alters, gorgeous stained glass windows and wood bench seating. The entire vestibule of the church is painted with a life-size mural of different figures prominent in the Catholic Church.”

“Go see this incredible Cathedral. They have some of the most beautiful stain glass windows I have ever seen. Be sure on the inside to stop in the middle and look up. A surprise. Go check it out and while there say a prayer for a loved one. Very beautiful inside. A must see!”
