The cathedral is located in the well known neighborhood of Summit (close to the Summit Hill House). Surprise is the parking lot of the cathedral since street parking can be a challenge. There is no fee to enter but donation boxes are around besides the usual way to support by giving when you light the candles. It is a cathedral... More

As good as some of the cathedrals I have seen in Europe. Plan on spending at least a couple of hours marveling at the grandeur.

Really in awe of the size and beauty of this cathedral. Really recommend visiting. Must see the Shrine of the Nations and the replica of Michelangelo's Pieta.

I love it in there! I could stare at the detail of this place all day long. The ceiling, the pews, the location, the steps outside...now the religion, that's another story. ;)

From the instant that we stepped through the doors, we could not believe that we were in Minnesota and not in some major European city. The cathedral was superbly done and the detail was beyond belief. We would recommend it to anyone.

Spectacular from the distance as well as inside. We went there during the winter. It's fascinating to see it in the snow.

We were in the Twin Cities area for a wedding and had an extra day for sight seeing. The Cathedral was recommended as a "must see". They were right! It was beautiful... I especially loved the "International Saints" area located behind the altar. If you're in the area you MUST see this; it rivals some of the Cathedrals you'll see... More

Whether going to Mass or visiting, the Cathedral is beautiful and has a reverent feel inside. As a participant, I have always appreciated the Homilies. As a visitor, I feel welcomed.
