The Baltimore Basilica was designed by Benjamin Henry Latrobe, the architect of the United States Capitol building. The Basilica is one of the most architecturally significant buildings in Baltimore and at the time of construction featured one of the country’s grandest interiors. The recent restoration project reinstated the building’s original interior color scheme, light marble flooring, and 24 clear glass skylights. 

The undercroft will be closed to tours. Extra masses will occur throughout the day for the Rosary Congress.
