Tucson's Cathedral ~
Surely one of the most beautiful buildings in downtown Tucson is St Augustine Cathedral on Stone Avenue. Over the front door carved in stone are various desert plants and inside the santuary the saguaro cactus blossom is featured on the main altar, pulpit, lectern and baptismal font. On the north end of the property is a colorful canopy/gazebo/stage which is formed of brilliantly colored metal flowers. I'll post that tomorrow so stay tuned!
NOW: Construction! The north side of the property is being developed as a low-income property for seniors. The colorful floral bandshell will be moved but I can't find a confirmation of its new location.
