Located downtown on Mulberry Street, The Basilica of Saint Patrick’s Old Cathedral was built in 1815 and was one of the original Catholic churches in New York City. Be transported through 200 years of history on a guided tour of “Old St. Patrick’s.” Be amazed by the incredible gothic design, stained glass windows, the last intact Erben Organ that boasts 2500 pipes and of course, the catacombs. Newly opened to the public, explore the forgotten catacombs hidden beneath this
downtown landmark. Experience the catacombs as they would have been centuries ago, with the tour taking place by flickering candlelight. Begin with an authentic, family-style lunch at The Original Vincent’s in Little Italy.
This tour requires walking. A flight of stairs is required to enter and depart the catacombs. Guests will reach the basilica after walking through a graveyard. Guests will be able to sit down before the tour in the upper portion of the basilica and then again upon reaching the catacombs. The walking tour of the catacombs will last approximately 30 minutes.
