This special AMERICA'S CASTLES visits the nation's great cathedrals, including St. Louis's Romanesque masterpiece and the National Cathedral in Washington.
They are masterpieces of Old World craftsmanship transplanted to American soil. With sweeping buttresses, soaring towers and exquisite details, they stand as testaments to faith and to the skill of the hands that built them.
This special AMERICA'S CASTLES® visits three of the most impressive cathedrals in the nation for an illuminating look at the architecture and history of these inspiring structures. In St. Louis, the Romanesque Great Cathedral is a symphony in mosaics, which somehow brings the divine down to earth without diminishing its power. The stunning Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, California is a celebration of the sky, sun and stars, acclaimed as one of the most glorious works of 20th century architecture. And in Washington, D.C., the massive National Cathedral is perhaps the world's last great Gothic structure, its windows and spires lifting spirits upwards towards the divine.
It's an inspiring tour of three of the most magnificent structures ever built in America.
