Originally photographed in 2010 I have updated the tour of this beautiful Basilica in Covington, Kentucky. It is said to have one of the largest stained glass windows in the world at 67 feet by 24 feet. This church in fact contains a profusion of 82 stained glass windows. Spaced along the north and south transepts are incredible mosaic depictions of the stations of Christ’s passion and death. As many as 80,000 tiles were used in each station. There are several large mural paintings by local Covington painter Frank Duveneck installed in 1910.

This is an updated version of a virtual tour that has been on-line since 2010 or so. I have “re-mastered” the image files and rebuilt the whole tour interface. The main issue of the old tour was that it was not compatible with iOS devices and other hand-held devices. It should now work with all (or most) handheld and tablet devices.
