The Cathedral of St. Theresa of Avila (Serbian and Katedrala Svete Terezije Avilske, A szabadkai Szent Teréz székesegyház) is a Roman Catholic cathedral and minor basilica located in Subotica, Serbia, the seat of the Diocese of Subotica. It is dedicated to Saint Theresa of Avila.
The Cathedral was built between 1773 and 1779 in the baroque style. At the time, Subotica was part of the Habsburg Monarchy. The building was designed by architect Franz Kaufmann from Pest. The altar is decorated with several paintings by Josef Schoefft, one painting of the Holy Family by Kasper Schleibne, and one painting of the True Cross by Emmanuel Walch.
The building is 61m long and 26m wide. The nave is 18m tall, while the bell towers are 64m tall. On the roof of the building, between the two bell towers, is a statue of Virgin Mary. The pulpit was built in 1808. The pipe organ was installed in 1897 and renovated in 1997. New renovation works are planned for 2015.
