It was a good place for a stop between Wallace and where we stayed in Blanchard. Lots of history on how the church started in the area. It cost 5 dollars just to park and walk around and go in the church but if you...More

The oldest building in Idaho stands just off the freeway, but it feels like a world away . The Cataldo Mission fills you with an almost spiritual experience as you take in the history of the building itself. The paintings, statues, and even the wall...More

Take the time to visit and experience the history contained within the Cataldo Mission, you're probably wont be disappointed. We were touring by bicycle on the Trail of the Coeur d'Lenes and hadn't planned on going the additional 3 miles to the Mission but now...More

The Mission, aside from being interesting and bringing you back to the mid-1800s, is a very peaceful place. It is good to know about the early Jesuits who helped and christianized the native Indians. Don't miss the few minutes' video in the visitor center. I...More

We were driving down I-90 to Coeur d'Alene, ID., and we saw the attraction sign on the Interstate. So I "googled" it on my iPad and read about it. To me, it sounded very interesting and we weren't disappointed. The Visitors Center is very impressive...More
