St. Augustine Cathedral

Contact Information

192 S. Stone Avenue, Tucson, AZ 85701

The cathedral was built in the Romanesque Revival style in 1896, but by the 1920s, its “French style” was considered inappropriate for Mexican and Spanish parishes. Its towers and facade were rebuilt with reinforced concrete and plaster and given a Spanish Colonial Revival look. St. Augustine’s bronze statue on the sandstone facade is complemented by saguaro, yucca, other cacti, and the horned toad. The Cathedral in Queretaro, Sonora was used as the model for the updated cathedral, which still serves parishioners. The cathedral site also includes the 1868 rectory and the 1915 Marist College Building, both adobe structures.
