Portrait of Omaha: Saint Cecilia Cathedral
Saint Cecilia's is a huge Roman Catholic cathedral. Construction on the structure began in 1905 and was completed in 1959. One of the largest cathedrals in the United States, it's built in the Spanish Renaissance Revival style and beautifully looms high above the skies of Omaha. If it sounds impressive, that's because it is. Whether you're religious or not, if you appreciate art and architecture this is a do-not-miss spot in the city.
As it's a Catholic church, it is open to the public every day, and you can always count on seeing at least one other person while there. If you're interested in seeing it for yourself, you can find it on the corner of 40th and Burt Streets, just south of Cuming Street. It's absolutely gorgeous inside, so let's take a look shall we?
