The Insider’s Guide To Asheville North Carolina By Southern Way of Life. This is Blog Six of Ten From Their Article. Their number 5

Number 5: Located at 97 Haywood St., just a short walk from the new Asheville Club at 151 atop the Indigo Hotel, is one of the most remarkable structures in the southeast. The Basilica of St. Lawrence is a Roman Catholic Church and, while I am not a Catholic, I know good art when I see it. Designed and built in 1905 by Spanish architect Rafael Guastavino, and fellow architect R.S. Smith, The Basilica is on the National Register of Historic Places. Its dome, at 58 feet by 82 feet, is the largest freestanding elliptical dome in North America. That is about as impressive as it gets. The inside of the church is adorned with statues of saints – including St. Lawrence, St. Cecilia, St. Rose of Lima, St. Patrick and St. Peter the Apostle – and is known for its many elaborate stained glass windows. Take some time to sit in the pews and marvel at the wonder of it all. For more info: http://www.saintlawrencebasilica.org/ 

The following is one of ten articles that I am privileged to repost from the Southern Way of Living Blog on Asheville NC, retirement and second home. I felt they represented our area so well that sharing this information with you will assist you in your decisions for that primary residence, second home, as well as helping choose the area of Western North Carolina.
