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.

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!”
