Visit the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption

Baltimore Basilica Interior

Designed by legendary architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe, construction of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption lasted from 1806 to 1821, and the church has served as one of the city's key cultural destinations for nearly 200 years. Today, visitors come from around the world to visit the Baltimore Basilica, and the site often draws more than 200,000 visitors each year.

  • The Baltimore Basilica is among the oldest religious buildings in the country and was the first cathedral built in the United States after the adoption of the Constitution. The building was designated a National Shrine by the Catholic Church in 1993 and remains one of Baltimore's most beloved landmarks.

  • With visitors flocking to the Baltimore Basilica for nearly two centuries, it's no surprise that the building occasionally needs some maintenance. The Baltimore Basilica closed for two years from 2004-2006 for restoration and to restore the site to the original vision of architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe.

  • The architecture at the Baltimore Basilica is one of the site's biggest attractions, and architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe had some help when designing the building. Bishop John Carroll, who was the country's first bishop, also played a key role in laying out the vision for the Baltimore Basilica.

  • Today, you can still visit the Baltimore Basilica to worship, or simply stop by to take a tour of this beautiful, historic Baltimore destination. Tours are available by request, and group tours are welcome.

  • Not able to make it to the Baltimore Basilica in person right now? No problem! You can get a great view inside by checking out the Basilica Dome Cam, which provides a live look at the building's interior.

  • When you tour the Baltimore Basilica, you'll also have the opportunity to visit one of the city's most beautiful, peaceful gardens. The Pope John Paul II Prayer Garden is located next to the Baltimore Basilica and is well worth a visit.

  • The Baltimore Basilica has seen more than 200 years of history and is still an active part of city life to this day. Throughout the year, you can visit the Baltimore Basilica Speaker Series, with presentations from notable speakers from around the country.

  • Throughout its history, the Baltimore Basilica has seen many notable Archbishops, who are commemorated with photos and artwork throughout the building. The sculptures, paintings, and religious artwork throughout the Baltimore Basilica tell so many stories and stand as examples of all the history that has taken place within the walls of the Basilica.
