It is one of the rare beauties present in America, in a neo-Gothic style with two large Spiers and a stained rose window. While inside, many parts were made with Carrara marble, such as the altar and statues, this wonderful place is located in Denver (Colorado).

Location 

Denver, with its curious nickname “One-mile city”, for being located on a 1600m high plateau, is located behind the mythical Rocky Mountains.

It is the capital of Colorado, whose name is already a whole program, but not only. Like Wyoming, the shape of this state is perfectly rectangular. Denver’s story begins with the Gold Rush, the 1800s gold rush to the Rocky Mountains and the West Coast. At that time, it arose as a border town, with local gambling, cathedral, hotel, and shops that supplied miners or sold land and livestock to those who wanted to stay.

Even today, its centralized location in the United States makes it a suitable place for sorting goods and services in neighboring states. A large number of people who work in government offices live here, not to mention the numerous technology companies in the area.

The construction of the cathedral started in 1902 and was completed in 1911 with a final cost of around $ 500,000. 

Catholic Church

The archdiocese of Denver (in Latin: Archidioecesis Denveriensis) is a Metropolitan seat of the Catholic Church of the United States of America belonging to the ecclesiastical region XIII (AZ, CO, NM, UT, WY). In 2016 it had 582,910 baptized out of 3,606,604 inhabitants. It is ruled by Archbishop Samuel Joseph Aquila.
