About the Cathedral of the Madeleine:
The cathedral combines a predominately Romanesque exterior with a Gothic interior.
The exterior of the cathedral remains substantially the same today as it was in 1909, except for the addition of a tympanum over the main doors and the double flight of steps leading to the main entrance.
The Comes interior, begun in 1917, was inspired in great part by the Spanish Gothic of the late Middle Ages. Colorful murals were added at that time, as was the dramatic polychrome evident throughout the building. The ornate reredos shrine of St. Mary Magdalen and the various shrines were notable features of the Comes renovation.
The cathedral is listed on the Utah Register of Historic Sites and the National Register of Historic Places. You will find the Mass schedules on their website.
