Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph

Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph

Going back to Medieval times and maybe even further than that, Catholic Churches and Cathedrals have been world renowned for their architectural and artistic splendor. The Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph in downtown San Jose certainly fits that description. The beautiful church has been renovated many times since its original inception, but parts of the building have been standing since the late 1800s. In fact, St. Joseph, named after the patron saint of the universal church, is the oldest non-mission parish built in the entire state of California. Located less than 20 minutes from Hotel Zico, the cathedral has incredible stained glass windows that are nearly 140 years old. In order to fully enjoy all of the art, history, and architecture of the building, you can schedule a tour of the basilica. There is even a gift shop full of inspirational books, traditional Catholic articles, imported goods, and even bibles.
