The Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis is one of the city's most stunning buildings, containing one of the world's largest mosaics. Though the video is secular in approach, it highlights a place and history important to Catholics.
"..This cathedral is also not as old as one might think. The planning for a new cathedral which would replace the old one, situated next to the Gateway Arch, began in late 19th century. During this time, a special fund and a formal organization promoting the new cathedral was created. The construction itself started later, when the foundation stone was placed in 1908."
