St. Matthew's Cathedral

St. Matthew's--not the blue-domed Immaculate Conception Basilica--is the cathedral of the Archdiocese of Washington. Built in 1895, it has an interior that is a riot of multicolored marbles, mosaics and coffers. The funeral Mass of assassinated president John F. Kennedy was held here in 1963 and the famous picture of John-John Kennedy saluting his father was taken out front. Pope John Paul II visited in 1979; Pope Francis in 2015. Open all day, St. Matthew's is also a center of culture and education, particularly during Advent and Lent.
